100 Calorie Snack Packs

Why spend hard earned money on pre packaged 100 calorie snacks? Here are some you can package yourself and always have ready for yourself or your kids' lunch box. Each of these will fit into a small snack zip lock bag which I buy at my local dollar store.


  • 1 small orange, peeled and sectioned
  • 2/3 cup of cocoa puffs cereal
  • 15 mini carrots
  • 3 tablespoons raisins
  • 6 reduced fat triscuits
  • 1 cup of washed and cut celery slices
  • 12 soy crisps
  • 1 cup of watermelon
  • 13 Stauffer's animal crackers
  • 3/4 oz. cheddar cheese
  • 2 twizzers stix
  • 7/8 cup of cheerios
  • 2/3 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cheese stick and 5 slices of shaved ham

I am so glad I saw this suggestion. I know you will like it, too.

These packs are great, but sometimes we just want some good sweet cookies! Or chips or whatever. These are the times when the pre-packaged 100 calorie snacks are great. We can still have what we are craving, without so much of the guilt.


So I'll keep right on buying the pre-packaged snacks. But I'll also try some of the ones listed here too.
