    I know that we should try not to snack and stuff. But sometimes I just feel a bit peckish and feel like I want/need to eat something. I was wondering, other than fruit, does anyone have any suggestions of healthy/low calorie snack type foods?

    When I feel like a snack I usually have either fruit, yogurts, slice of toast using weight watchers bread as it's only 49 cals a slice, raisins, snack sized chocolate such as kit kat or breakaway usually about 110 cals so worth the treat, quavers 87 cals a pack, snack a jacks, rivita, rice crackers..

    Other than fruit...I have a packet of Walkers Baked crisps - 98 cals (mango chilli flavour).

    The other snack I occasionally have is a couple of pieces of dark chocolate straight from the fridge.

    I always have carrots ( or any veg strips really ) and dip it into a small pot of light Philadelphia, really tasty / filling and only about 100 cals.

    fruit,snack a jacks,low cal crisps (eg quavers) yogs, cereal bars ( alpen lite are lovely) I also have cuppa soups and things like splendips.

    dont think that you shouldnt snack. If you are genuinely hungry have something otherwise you run the rsik of caving and having a binge ( or is that just me). Some expecrts say we should have 5 maller meals a day and ensure we eat every 2-3 hours

    Those Pink n White wafer biscuits are massive and only have 50 calories in them. I like them cos it takes a few mouthfuls to eat them unlike a conventional biscuit where it's gone in two, and hasn't filled a gap.

    I never thought of those pink n white ones.... Hmmm!!
    I like the weightwatchers chocolate wafers, 78 cals each and they seem to go with a cuppa just as well, if not better, than a couple of biccies used to!

    little tip from me:

    yogurts last aaaages if you freeze them. if you want them mushy like frozen yog/icecream then just leave them in the freezer for a couple of hours. i always forget about them though, so i have them when theyre mega frozen, they can take up to half an hour to eat by which time you're no longer in a snacky mood and you've only consumed about 70 cals (based on activia fat-free yogs) yum!
    i like to eat on when i'm watching tv as it stops me from reaching for more unhealthy snacks

    I love fruit as a snack, also snack a jacks not very nutrious but quite yummy, little boxes of raisins or other dried fruit, pretzels are fairly low calorie or popcorn.
