Eight No-Fuss Healthy Snacks


Convenience is one reason why kids and adults are more likely to reach for a bag of chips or a high-fat microwaveable snack. Try some of these healthier no-fuss alternatives instead to curb afternoon hunger pangs:


  • Individual serving of fat-free yogurt or sugar-free pudding
  • Microwaveable popcorn (a whole bag of 94 percent fat-free“butter-flavored” popcorn has less than 150 calories)
  • Low-fat string cheese and a handful of cherry tomatoes
  • Sliced apple with a tablespoon of peanut butter
  • Banana
  • A dozen baby carrots with hummus dip
  • Cup of homemade trail mix with whole grain cereal, raisins and dry-roasted peanuts or almonds, or a cup of cereal with non-fat milk
  • Whole wheat tortilla wrap with low-fat cheese (microwave just long enough to melt cheese)
