What’s a snack?
(n) A snack is a small amount of food eaten between meals.
Remember, meals are the main times that we eat during the day – breakfast, lunch and dinner. When you eat something between meals, it’s usually a small amount of food (just enough to stop you feeling hungry until your next meal!)
So you can have a ‘snack’ at any time of the day!
