Quick Answers

 

 

How much will I save on average by switching to healthier snacks?

 
The amount you save depends on how many snacks your household eats a day. If your household switches two items for healthier items each day, you would save an average of 65 cents a day. This amount adds up quickly and will reach $218.00 dollars a year. Now that is only for two snacks! If you are a family of four and you and your spouse eat one snack each and your kids eat two snacks each that is a total of six snacks a day. You can easily double or even triple the savings each year by switching more snacks or all of your snacks to healthier, cheaper options.
