I’m not an advocate of snacking – but everyone’s different and I know there’s just some occasions and days where you are hungry and need a little snack to see you through to your next meal. The biggest danger with snacking is that often that ‘little tempting morsel’ is a calorie bomb.
So i’ve found a list of healthy options to snack on that contain less than 100 calories. Most of them are not fruit, which I think is quite good as sometimes you need other options.
If you are grazer or like to snack frequently, you really need to be wise about what you’re consuming. If you’re concerned, keep a diary as to everything you eat and tally it all up. If you’re having trouble managing your weight you might considering snacking on healthier options or eating slightly bigger portions at your main meal times to help you feel full for longer.
I hope you find this list useful:
