Do Snacks Need to be Plated?

We are often asked whether snacks "need to be" plated. ⁠

We believe that snacks should be where the need to be: at school, at work, at your desk, at the table, on the field, at the beach, outside...⁠

Here is a plated snack, but we have previously shown snacks in zip lock bags, and other ways. We consider snacks to be a few different food groups paired together. We recommend full servings of these items (the snack size bag of chips or the serving size of cookies, crackers etc - so not just 3 crackers - or not just 5 chips) then pairing the item along with a few other things. ⁠
