There is so much snacking going on during the pandemic. Reaching for comfort foods can help people cope with life's uncertainties and challenges. But if you feel your snacking has gotten out of control, here are seven strategies to snack better.

Snack food consumption, including both sweet and savory snacks, increased by 8% during the Covid-19 pandemic, according to consumer research company NPD Group's Snack Food Behaviors in Challenging Times study.

That's much more than during the Great Recession, between 2008 and 2010, where snack foods increased by 1%, or 4. 8 billion eatings.

"Consumers quickly stocked up on snacks and indulgent foods for their shelf lives while others were stress eating. "

This will help make snacking a lot more pleasurable.

Healthy snacks like carrot sticks and hummus, fruit and small portions of nuts provide important nutrients, and are all great snack choices, according to Nestle.

In our home, I place a bowl filled with our favorite fruits on the kitchen table, so we are more likely to grab them when we are craving a snack.

Consumers who have five or more packages of crackers or salty snacks consume those foods at higher rates than consumers with fewer packages in their home, according to the NPD study.

Placing snacks on smaller plates can help you control the amount of food you eat.
