1)A piece of fresh fruit or vegetable such as an apple, banana or carrot. Keep chunks or sticks wrapped in a plastic bag is the fridge. Having them there and ready to go is the key here. Half of the appeal to candy and chips is their ready-to-go availability. Having your fruits and vegetables in the same format will increase the chances that you will choose them rather than a snack that is not good for you.

2)A handful of dried fruit, such as raisins, apricots or sultans. These also make a perfect addition to children's lunch boxes or school snack breaks. Again, we fall into the category of availability – if they are there, and ready to go, your chances of choosing them over more fatty snacks will increase.

3)A portion of canned fruit in natural fruit juice – serve with a spoonful or two of fat free yogurt. Make sure that you purchase the type canned in water or natural fruit juices however, as you don't want the added sugar in the “syrup” versions.
4)One or two crisp rice cakes. You can have plain rice cakes or top them with honey or reduced fat cheese. Also available are several great flavors of rice cakes such as cheddar cheese, cinnamon or caramel. Just be sure to check the labeling for added fat and sugar content added.

5)Crackers, such as water biscuits or crisp breads, spread with reduced sugar jam or marmalade.

6)A bowl of whole-wheat breakfast cereal or no-added sugar granola served with a little skimmed milk. Oatmeal has the distinction of being one of the very first prepared cereals that was approved to be labeled as “Cholesterol Lowering” by the FDA
7)Very low-fat plain or fruit yogurt or ricotta cheese

8)A toasted teacake spread with reduced sugar jam or marmalade

9)a toasted pancake spread with fruit puree

For many of us snack time is that one or two times a day when, because of haste, we always choose the wrong foods. It's important to some of us to snack, but should be even more important to snack wisely!
