Ideas for Healthy Snacks

Not only are these snacks healthy, most of them make great "grab and go" snacks for the whole family. Here are some ideas for healthy snacks:

  • Apples with low fat (or non fat) string cheese.

  • Carrot sticks and celery sticks (refrigerate in a container with water and they'll stay crisp).

  • Celery with a peanut butter and raisins.

  • Nonfat plain or vanilla yogurt sprinkled with low fat granola or crunchy cereal.

  • Grapes, try freezing them, like little popsicle bites.

  • Raw unsalted almonds (you'll get used to them raw - they're so good and for some reason you won't eat as many as you would if they were salted).

  • Bananas (yep, the perfect snack).

  • 1/2 whole wheat bagel with almond butter and sliced bananas.

  • Non-fat cottage cheese with blueberries or strawberries.

  • Chilled orange wedges.

  • Rice cake topped with peanut butter and a no-added-sugar, all-fruit spread.

  • Top 1/2 of a whole wheat English muffin with thinly sliced tomatoes. Spray the top of the tomatoes with a little olive oil non-stick cooking spray, sprinkle with low-fat Parmesan cheese, fresh or powdered garlic, and basil. Pop in the toaster oven for a few minutes and voila - you've got a great bruschetta snack.

  • Broccoli stalks! Don't throw away the stalks after you've sliced off the heads. Peel the outer layer from the stalks with a small sharp knife and you'll get to the heart of the stalk. You'll realize what you've been missing at first bite!

  • Be sure your bread products (English muffins, bagels, sliced bread, etc) are made from whole grains, not just "whole wheat".
