I generally don’t recommend snacking regularly because snacking is often associated with poor food habits such as skipping meals and choosing packaged and convenience foods that are high in salt, fat and sugar and low in nutrition.
In saying that, snacking isn’t all bad, so as long as you’re eating properly throughout the day and are organised enough to ensure healthy food is on hand.
Here are 27 low calorie snacks that are under 200 calories each:
|1 banana||20g nuts & 50g dried fruit||1 carrot & 2 tbsp hummus|

|2 oranges, 1 carrot & 1 cup baby spinach in a blender. Blend well. Drink pulp and all.||1 regular skim cappuccino||1 small (90g) tin of tuna and 2 vita wheat crackers|
|1 pumpkin & spinach muffin||1 punnet blueberries & 4 squares of extra dark chocolate||1 quinoa and linseed ball|

|10 multi-grain rice crackers with 2 tbsp hummus||1 small wholegrain muesli bar||1 boiled egg|
