10 Simple Snacks Under 200 Calories

In This Article

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!
