Most of us eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, but what do we do in between? We snack, of course! We snack during movies, office hours (bless those well-stocked pantries), and just about any time when our stomach overrules our brain. Let’s face it, we can’t (and won’t) stop snacking altogether, but we can substitute our usual Mamee, Super Ring, and Mister Potato with healthier alternatives for the sake of our bodies. So, the next time you inevitably wander into the snack aisle of your local supermarket, scan the shelves for these healthy snacks made by Malaysian brands and make a conscious decision to munch more responsibly.
