Q: Please show me example sentences with snack on.
A: OHHH! The verb “snack” is similar to the word “eat”. The difference is that “snack” is smaller amounts of food, something that is not considered a full meal. A snack can be a noun as well, for example chips, popcorn, or candy are all snacks.
For example: someone would snack on popcorn.
Is popcorn a meal? No. It is a light snack, or a smaller portion of food you eat in between meals.
A pizza? That is a meal.

Simplified explanation: the verb to snack means to eat. But what you are eating is not a full meal, it is a “snack food” like chips or popcorn or candy. You can also say “I will eat popcorn”, or even more common is “I’m going to get some popcorn”.

Q: Please show me example sentences with Pick at, snack on, pig out, polish off, live on, cut down on, order in, eat out and dig in.
A: I have never been one to pick at my food, I usually eat whatever is served. Some people like to snack on whatever is handy at the moment, that is not a healthy way to eat. When I was younger, I could pig out on two large pizzas and a pitcher of beer, and not gain a pound. I had two teenage sons, we would polish off every bit of food on the table faster than my wife could make it. Now, at my age, I can live on about 1500 calories a day. If I eat more than 2000 calories a day, I need to cut down on the grub or start gaining weight. It is fun to order in, but there are very few options in the small town where I live. We eat out once or twice a week, nothing fancy, just the local greasy spoon. We don't have fancy manners, we just dig in and chow down!
Q: Please show me example sentences with snack on.
A: To snack on something is to eat small portions of something, normally between meals. For example, I've been snacking on nuts all day.
