You may think you get an energy boost from eating something sweet. In fact a sweet snack doesn’t give more energy than a savoury snack – and can actually make you more tired afterwards.
If you do feel hungry between meals, choose something savoury. But if you cannot resist something sweet, it’s best to delay and have it after your next meal – preferably enjoying it (risk – free) as a dessert.
