im an 11 year old girl and im womdering, what is the best time of day to have a snak like as my 18year old brother and my 43year old mother.i also want to now how many calories perr day do we all need .

We often suggest two snacks each day, often mid morning and mid afternoon, but it depends on when you eat meals. Snacks are meant to be a “mini meal” to provide nutrients you need and prevent you from getting ravenously hungry before your next full meal. Each of you needs a different number of calories. You can find out how many at www.mypyramid.gov.
