200 calories or less: snack ideas

First I would like to share some tips on healthy snacking:

  • Serving size is important – calories can add up easily
  • Try to include protein – dairy, nuts, beans, etc

  • Cook and freeze a big batch of beans so they are readily available
  • If you are still hungry after the snack – munch on raw veggies
  • Eat a healthy snack between your lunch and dinner, so you don’t over eat at dinner time
