10 Simple Snacks Under 200 Calories

When hunger hits between meals, it’s easy to gravitate towards those pre-portioned packs of pretzels, cookies, and crackers. Yes, they’re convenient, but they’re also loaded with refined carbs, which means they’re relatively nutrient-poor and won’t have much staying power. Snacks with a balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fat, such as a cup of low-fat milk and a small apple, will leaving you feeling more satisfied and provide more vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Switch up your snack routine and try some of these R.D.-approved options—all 200 calories or less!

1. Hard boiled egg, diced + 2 tablespoons hummus + Slice of whole grain toast*  | 198 calories

2. Small banana + 16 almonds  | 200 calories

3. 1/4 cup mashed avocado + whole grain toast* + a pinch of sea salt  |  192 calories

4. 1/2 medium apple + 1 tablespoon peanut butter + 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts  | 191 calories

6. 3/4 cup of homemade trail mix (Combine 1/4 cup bittersweet or dark chocolate chips + 1/4 cup dried tart cherries + 1/2 cup almonds + 2 cups air popped popcorn + pinch of sea salt)  | 154 calories
