Some snacks can have a lot of fat and also a lot of sugar. These kinds of snack only give you energy for a short time. Remember: extra kilojoules which aren’t used up during physical activity are empty energy (see Kids' special: Processed food for a reminder). Extra kilojoules can change into body fat. So foods with a lot of fat and a lot of sugar are treats – best saved for only special occasions.
Food for thought
Have a glass of water with these cookies for an afternoon snack.
