Healthy Snacks

Healthy Snacks that taste good.

Carrots and Dip

The snack: 14 carrot sticks (or baby carrots) with 3 tablespoons of Athenos Original Hummus
The nutrition: 105 calories, 4.5 g fat (0 g saturated fat), 6.5 g sugar, 3.5 g fiber, 110% vitamin A, 13% vitamin C, 2% calcium



Yogurt and Nuts

The snack: 1 cup fat-free Greek yogurt with a dash of Splenda and 1 tablespoon sliced or chopped nuts
The nutrition: 165 calories, 3.75 g fat (0.25 g saturated fat), 9 g sugar, 1 g fiber, 17% calcium
Tip: Don't sabotage yourself by choosing healthful snacks that don't taste good to you. "I often find that when patients eat snacks that don't satisfy their taste buds -- I call it 'eating around their cravings,' -- they end up eating more overall," says Melina Jampolis, M.D.

English Muffin with Cheese

The snack: A Thomas Light Multigrain English Muffin with 1 slice low-fat melted cheese
The nutrition: 165 calories, 3.5 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat), 3 g sugar, 4% vitamin A, 10% vitamin D, 28% calcium

Apple and Almonds

The snack: One Blue Diamond 100-calorie almond pack along with a small apple
The nutrition: 180 calories, 9 g fat (0.5 g saturated fat), 17 g sugar, 170 mg potassium, 7 g fiber, 2% vitamin A, 8% vitamin C, 4% calcium
Tip: A 59-person study presented at the 2008 Obesity Society meeting suggests that pre-portioned 100-calorie snack packs not only help you cut calories significantly, they can also help retrain your eye to recognize correct portion sizes.


Crackers and Cheese

The snack: 3 Ak-Mak 100% Whole Wheat crackers and 1 triangle of Laughing Cow Light Swiss Original Cheese
The nutrition: 104 calories, 3 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 1.4 g sugar, 2.5 g fiber, 2% vitamin A, 6% calcium
Tip: Our eyes, as much as our stomachs, influence how much we eat. If you eat directly from a large container, you'll eat more.

The nutrition: 110 calories, 17 g protein, 3 g fat (0 g saturated fat), 3 g fiber, 20% vitamin A, 45% vitamin C, 20% calcium
