When you take a good look around you, everywhere you will see different foods for different meals. However, most of the time, what you will see are junk foods which are definitely not a healthy bunch of snacks. The problem is not really so much on the ability to choose healthy snacks over the not-so-healthy ones, for everyone is equipped with thinking ability.

However, the perpetrators are the appearance of snacks. At times, people are drawn to snacks that look good so much so that no matter how unhealthy those are, they still choose them over healthy snacks. Somehow they think that attractive snacks taste good. Reality says that it is not the case all the time. The good looks of the snacks do not assure nutrition, not even great taste.
