Being a caregiver requires long hours that don’t always allow time for proper meals. That’s why snacks become so essential during a long shift. Thus, our contest question on our Facebook page this week was “Do you have any go-to snacks during a long shift?” We received a number of diverse answers but here were some of the most popular:
