Next time you reach for a stamina-boosting snack, load up on energy, not fat.

It’s 4pm, and as you feel your concentration flagging, your tummy starts to rumble and thoughts of tasty snacks spring to mind. You try to resist at first, but the thoughts keep nagging at you, so what should you eat?

Snacking has a bad reputation, but not every between-meal bite leads to weight gain. Yes - the wrong snack gives you only a fleeting moment of pleasure (a moment on the lips), which may well linger as unwelcome weight gain (a few kilos on the hips?). But the right snack not only gives you the energy and brainpower you need to make it to the next meal, but also stops you from becoming so ravenous that you overeat at that meal. Try these easy tips for smarter snacking.

Nourish with nibbles

Prepare a healthy platter that's packed with energising nutrients. Dip cucumber, carrot and celery sticks, grape tomatoes and pickled vegies (such as onions, olives or artichoke hearts) into tomato relish or low-fat tzatziki for extra pizazz

Be label savvy

It’s important to read food labels so you know what you’re putting in your body. Nutrition information can be tricky to decipher, so keep it simple: Choose a snack that’s 400 to 600kJ (about 100 to 150cal) and ensure that your portion isn’t larger than the recommended serving size.

Build strong bones

Choose two or three of these options to get your daily serves of dairy: a glass of reduced-fat milk, a tub of low-fat yoghurt, or a few crackers topped with two slices of reduced-fat cheese.
