Snacking is what we women do. We believe in the power of positive snacking and that a good snack honors what we crave without a smidgen of what it shouldn't.
A new Study developed by LUNA called 'The Power of Snacking: The Next Decade of Women's Changing Nutrition' recently examined how different generations of women will likely change their snacking behaviors over the next 10 years across different life stages.
