Who can resist a delicious slice of juicy bak kwa or those tempting pineapple tarts when you do your visiting during the Chinese New Year? If you have goodies lying around your house, you might also find yourself reaching for them more often than you should. Although we only feast on CNY snacks once a year, this doesn’t mean that we should just indulge mindlessly. These yummy festive goodies might be bite-sized but they contain a large amount of sugar, fat, and sodium, and can cause you to pile on the calories pretty quickly. However, by keeping yourself informed about what the snacks contain, and how much walking you need to do to burn off the calories, you can watch yourself and prevent yourself from overeating, or choose healthier options instead. Read on to find out more about six of the most popular CNY snacks.
