  • Here are some healthy grab-and go snack ideas:

  • Small oatmeal raisin cookie with a small carton of fat-free or one percent milk, a few pieces of dried fruit with a small carton of low-fat yoghurt or a couple of packaged cheese sticks with whole-grain crackers. Try fresh apple slice of turkey or leftover chicken wrapped in a romaine lettuce leaf or a hardboiled egg with a couple of carrot sticks.

  • Best Diet Snacks
    Snacks are not only a welcome part of a weight-management plan, they can be allies in the battle. You should plan on no more than 200 calories per snack. The fiber, fluid and lean protein in small portions of foods chosen as snacks can keep your blood sugar on an even keel to help you curb hunger pangs and keep energy levels up so that you get the physical activity that you need.

  • Kid – Friendly Snacks
    Children need snacks. Depending on the age, they just seem to do better with smaller meals eaten throughout the day. So, again, think of snacks as mini meals and great opportunities to deliver needed nutrients. So since tiny tummies have room for only so much food, why fill them up with junk food’s empty calories?

  • Now, there’s nothing wrong with cookies, crackers, chips and even the occasional candy. But choose versions that sneak in needed nutrients such as oatmeal raisin cookies (fiber) and whole-grain nutrients. Dipping fruit into chocolate sauce (strawberries, chunks to pineapple or banana) is preferred over chocolate bars. Also, some fast – food places sell cut – up fruit to go.

  • Need Snacks In The Car?
    How about slightly sweet – tasting grape tomatoes (just like fresh grapes, cut these in half for kids under age three to prevent choking) or fresh carrot chips? Offer with low – fat ranch dressing or hummus as a super after-school snack that serves up many nutrients.

  • Beverages as Snacks
    Yes, beverages count. In fact, staying hydrated is vital to support good health for your body and mind, the best liquid snacks deliver plenty of water whether they’re in the form of plain water, flavored waters, non-fat milk, unsweetened iced tea or 100 percent fruit or vegetable juices. But when liquids contain calories, remember the volume for portion control.
