In moderation, they are okay. Snacks are not really a food

group. They are typically low-fat, but are high in carbs and salt.

The white flour is less healthy than others.

No, pretzels are not really a very healthy choice. Certainly,

there are worse choices than pretzels, but they tend to have a good

deal of salt and little nutritional value. They're also not good at

keeping you full as a snack. Fruits and vegetables are much better

options. Nuts such as almonds or pistachios make for an excellent

snack as well.
