By Lauren Silverman, Special to The Baltimore Sun | June 19, 2012
Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth), which is reprinted here. This week, diatetic intern Lauren Silverman weighs in on snacking. Snacks don't have to be sugary, salty junk foods; they can be a healthful, low-calorie way to sneak some extra nutrients into your diet. Smart snacking can also keep you from overeating at your next meal.

In Howard County, it's perfectly legal to consume the biggest, most gargantuan family-size bag of barbecue-flavored potato chips at one sitting and wash it down with a case of the most sugary soda ever made. Or, if that's not your taste, perhaps something more along the lines of the Homer Simpson diet with a thousand glazed doughnuts and a 64-ounce carton of chocolate syrup. County employees can partake of this artery-clogging, stomach-distending meal as often as they'd like. So can public school students.

Labragator in the house, ready to cheer on the Ravens this Sunday. Truth be told, she was less than amused at being dressed up in people clothes for a photo. When kickoff finally gets here, though, I have no doubt she'll be more than ready for some of our gameday snacks. And while I'll be tempted to share (those big brown eyes get me every time), the experts say I'd better be careful -- not all people snacks are OK for our pets. Trainer and T.V. star Cesar Millan says there are some treats that are fine for man and canine, including peanut butter, cooked chicken (if your dog isn't allergic -- Molly is, so this is off our list)

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado grew up eating chips and salsa. He enjoys the delicious combination at family gatherings, tailgate parties and just when he wants a snack during his off days. Tuesday afternoon, Machado unveiled his own line of “Machado's Salsa,” which is being sold exclusively at Giant grocery stores in the area, as well as online at PLBsports.com. Machado's Salsa comes in both medium and mild flavors. “I'm very humbled by this, for salsa,” Machado said, amid some laughter, at the unveiling event held at the Pikesville Giant.

Soon after hearing that Hostess Brands Inc. was shutting down for good, Lisa Renee Clark wasted no time dashing out to the Wonder Hostess Bakery Thriftshop in Glen Burnie. But by midday Friday, she was almost too late. The Twinkies had sold out. Supplies of Wonder white bread were dwindling. And the shelves appeared bare of Ho Hos. Finally spotting two boxes of the cream-filled snack cakes, Clark snatched them up. "So many fun, good things from my childhood are going away," said Clark, 43, a self-employed production assistant and camera operator from Pasadena.

As a parent of a ninth-grader at Glenelg High School, I am saddened and flabbergasted that the PTA is taking such a hard-line stance against student health and, indirectly, academic performance. I was equally shocked by the soda and candy machines moved into my child's school this year - especially as they directly conflict with the message taught in health classes. I truly think it comes down to money that the school and boosters want to make. I read one reader's concern as to the negative impact of proposed wellness changes.

The recipe is familiar, but with a fresh twist. Mix the salty, crunchy goodness of traditional munchies with the spicy kick reminiscent of Maryland's steamed crabs - and add the power of several professional Baltimore athletes for good measure - and you've got a new line of snacks with hometown flavor. Crab-inspired cheese curls, buttery popcorn and sunflower seeds are some of the product offerings from Home Team Snacks, headquartered in Carroll County. Launched in 2012, the company is the brainchild of Marc Heyman and Jeff Hinton, 49-year-old Baltimore-area natives who grew up in Mount Washington and Catonsville, respectively.

A healthy diet includes nutrient-rich food from all the food groups - especially fruits and vegetables. To get the vitamins, minerals and fiber you need, the American Heart Association recommends cutting back on beverages and foods with added sugars. For women, it recommends limiting added sugar to no more than 100 calories, or about 6 teaspoons, per day. For men, it recommends no more than 150 calories, or about 9 teaspoons, each day. Here's how fruits and vegetables sold by area bicycle vendors stack up against processed snacks.

For years, the Bard family has biked everywhere from libraries and farmer's markets to friends' homes and downtown Columbia events. Luda, Aaron and their children - Ammi, 3, Ari, 7, and Ellie, 9 - love traveling via bike, but the snacks available at most venues they bike to are limited, especially when two of their three children have food allergies, Luda Bard said. So they bring their own healthy food along for the ride. "At the summer concerts at the [Columbia] lakefront, the only food there was the ice cream truck," she said.

Q: Help! I often catch my dog eating trash -- or sometimes even dog excrement (his own or from other dogs). Why does he do this, and how can I stop this behavior? A: These behaviors are not uncommon. Like Oscar the Grouch, dogs love trash -- especially the smells wafting from bags, bins and containers. In your kitchen trash can, the discarded food we scrape off our dinner plates is actually fairly fresh. Dogs must be thinking we're crazy for throwing away perfectly good stuff.

From hot-chocolate stands to dog walking to helping people with computers, kids can start their own businesses - and learn about the value of money along the way. On a chilly day last November, 5-year-old Sylvia Fordham caught the business bug. “She wanted to have a lemonade stand to make money,” says her mother, Jennifer. “But it was freezing outside. I told her I didn't think anyone would want a cold drink on a cold day, so I suggested she try something else.” A few hours - and one trip to the grocery store - later, Sylvia's stand was up and running, serving hot chocolate and homemade cookies to her Baltimore neighbors.

It's not easy to escape cravings when you're trying to lose weight. For many people, those temptations are wide awake when night falls, and Becky Hand knows what it's like to fight the munchies after dinner. "Those kids get to bed and there's downtime, and that's when I want to eat," says Hand, a registered dietitian at SparkPeo ple.com, a diet and fitness Web site. "It is not hunger at all - it is strictly a stress reliever." Many people tell Hand that they can stick with a healthful eating plan all day, but at night they're ravenous.

Next Tuesday, the Top 10 list will be the great stuff you get in restaurants just for showing up ... Or showing up and ordering something off the menu. We're talking baskets of chips and salsa, cheddar biscuits and panchan, the shared side dishes you get at Korean restaurants.

We're not looking so much for bar snacks, but knock yourself out. Leave a comment below.
