Healthy Snack Ideas for Work

Do you often find yourself having a snack attack at 3pm? If so, try to resist the lure of the bag of cookies or the call of the vending machine. Instead, plan ahead and try one of these ideas, aiming for a 100 to 150 calorie snack:

  • Carrot, celery and bell pepper sticks with two tablespoons of fat-free dressing to dip them in
  • Reduced-fat cheese and crackers
  • A six to eight ounce container of low-fat or non-fat yogurt
  • Fresh fruit
  • A low-calorie, fruit-and-nut snack bar
  • Dried fruits and nuts
  • Homemade trail mix combinations, such as raw nuts, sunflower seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds, dates, raisins, dried cranberries
  • A cup of hot microwave soup (non-creamy)
  • Toasted wholegrain bread spread with nut butter
