The survey found that most women pay attention to the caloric content of their snack, though one-in-five say they do not count snack calories. Three-quarters of them eat up to four times a day, including snacking and 85% of respondents believe that indulgence are aspects of daily life. They mostly choose candy for themselves and fruit for their families.
