13 Healthy Snack Ideas

There’s always that time between meals that we get a little hungry, and reach for a snack. But have you taken a look at the snacks you are reaching for? So many of the typical snacks are filled with all kinds of things that we don’t like to put in our bodies. I have compiled a quick list of some easy healthy snacks for you to try next time you need a little something between meals.

  1. Fresh fruit: strawberries, a banana, some cantaloupe, watermelon, etc.
  2. Hummus with fresh vegetables or whole-grain crackers
  3. Cottage cheese topped with berries
  4. Yogurt (can also be topped with berries or granola)
  5. Granola bars or cereal bars
  6. Whole-grain crackers with some low-fat cheese slices
  7. Sliced tomato with feta cheese and olive oil
  8. Homemade oatmeal
  9. Nuts and dried fruit
  10. Whole-wheat toast with a fried egg white
  11. Air-popped popcorn
  12. Apple slices with peanut or almond butter
  13. Granola bars

These may not be quite as tasty as some of the other snack you sometimes reach for, but they are much better for you. Many of these are snacks that you could pack and easily bring to work or school with you to grab on the go.

  1. You’re really a health-conscious mom. Hummus with fresh vegetables or whole-grain crackers is such an original idea. I would love to try making it someday!

  2. I love finding healthy snack ideas that me and the kiddos can easily make and enjoy. Anything that has fruit is a winner in our house. These are all so yummy.

  3. These are great suggestions. I’m great at making healthy meals…but I always seem to struggle with the snacks. I like crunchy things like chips and always forget to have an alternative on hand!!

  4. These are all awesome ideas! I’m trying to eat healthier so I’ll definitely have to try some out! (especially since i’m constantly snacking)
