Are We Oversnacked?

Are there two words that can make a child smile faster than, "snack time?" But it's not just kids. We all love to snack. Aisle after aisle in the grocery store is filled with sweet, salty, savory and, yes, even healthy snacks. Do we live in an oversnacked society?  Is this fixation adding to the dangerous level of childhood obesity and playing a role in the growing number of poorly nourished kids in our country?

This is a great article because as a parent, I think a lot about my kids snacking habits. I also write a website called Snack Girl (http://www.snack-girl.com/) where I feature healthy snacks ideas for kids to replace junk food.
