I can almost guarantee that as this new decade has rolled around, you – or someone close to you – has made a pact in regards to your health or weight. As women, we’re doing it all the time and rarely pulling through. In fact, Hovis recently found that the average British woman will snack on over 129 packets of crisps, more than 127 chocolate bars, over 77 cakes and more than 133 biscuits in the average year. Over half of these women also wished they could give up their unhealthy snacking vice.
The thing is, snacking is great for our bodies. In combination with healthy meals, snacking keeps our metabolism running at faster rates (aka weight loss), and gives us a steady stream of nutrition. This is why Hovis Wholemeal has launched the ‘Stop Snacking‘ (well, the unhealthy kind) Facebook app at www.facebook.com/hovisbakery.
Not only does the app help you track your snacking success, but also gives you motivational advice and enters you in daily competitions for gifts like a Mulberry handbag and Tiffany’s jewellery. You would be crazy not to join!
