Has anyone ever told you that snacking is unhealthy? Snacking has received a bad reputation over the years due to the popularity of unhealthy snacks; however, according to the American Heart Association, snacking can be healthy when you do it in moderation and choose the right foods. Learn how to snack right with our top healthier snacks for sensitive bladders:
Kale Blueberry Salad
This quick and easy snack is perfect for those with sensitive bladders because leafy greens, like kale, are alkaline-rich foods that cleanse the kidneys and urinary system from acids left over from other foods. In addition, blueberries are a preferred fruit for those who experience light-to-heavy leakage because they contain less acids compared to other fruits like oranges, plums, grapes, pineapples and more. Simply wash the kale and blueberries, add a couple toppings and voilà! You’re ready to get your snack on.
Beet & Berries Popsicles

Sweet potato is a root vegetable that is a great source of fiber, vitamins and minerals like Vitamins A and C, potassium, manganese and more.
