It’s not just the kids who are snacking these days. While at home, at work, or simply on the go, 93% of Americans suffer a snack attack at least once a day. Whether it’s the mid-morning grumble or the 3 o’clock slump, a snack attack is that moment when a person craves a little nibble and an extra boost of energy. In a world where fast food chains promote $1 snacking menus and a mid-afternoon coffee comes with 500 extra calories, it can be both overwhelming and confusing to make the smart snacking choice. A recent Harris Interactive Survey revealed: * 93% of adults have at least one snack a day. * Of parents polled, more than half seek out grain-based foods – including crackers, bread sticks, pretzels, toast, bagel, pita bread as snacks for their kids. Now that kids across the country are preparing to head back to school and employees are getting back to their hectic post-summer schedules, the Food Network’s Robin Miller and the Grain Foods Foundation are teaming up to help Americans fight The Snack Attack! Robin launched the Smart Snacking Contest in late August.
