100 Calorie Snack Ideas

Stores are full of 100 calorie snack bags (even Bob from "The Biggest Loser" thinks they are great) that are often full of small amounts of processed foods. If you are looking for a low-calorie snack, I say it pays to find foods that fulfill some nutritional needs.

Hard-boiled egg
This excellent source of protein is prepackaged naturally. Simple to prepare and, when eaten simply (no devil-ing), only costs you 78 calories! I like to make three or four at the beginning of the week to have on hand for my morning snack on the days that I don’t have eggs for breakfast.

String cheese
One stick is about 80 calories, and these sticks are child friendly too. It is always nice to snack on the same foods as your kids. After all, string cheese is entertaining (oh so fun to peel each string), and they are easy to tote around. Though they are full of calcium, watch the fat content of your cheese stick and look for low fat or reduced fat if you can find it.

Hummus and Pita
You need to keep your portion small to stay under 100 calories. You only need two tablespoons of hummus spread on 1/4 slice of pita pocket bread. Make this snack even more nutritious by using whole wheat pita bread. I also enjoy dipping carrots and red pepper slices into hummus. This method helps me increase my daily veggie intake.

iVillage has some more ideas for you to try. Chances are high you'll find something to satisfy your snack craving.

I had to giggle at that blatent product placement in the show. One for Nabisco, Zero for the poor biggest loser contestants who cant stop at just ONE bag!!

LOL, I bought those 100 calorie packs of Oreo crisps once and my husband was SO mad. He thinks they are the biggest waste of money ever. I didn't particularly care for them, either. I usually have a piece of fruit or a bowl of oatmeal as a low calorie snack.

I agree, I'd rather eat my own 100 calorie snacks that pay $5 bucks for something that won't fill me up. I'm not impressed by them. I love string cheese!

I can find much better ways to spend 100 calories than those snack packs from Nabisco. Some of them have 3 grams of fat, and are loaded in preservatives and sugar. Why waste on those? I've seen some folks who swear by them, thus snacking all day long. By day's end they have eaten 3, 4, 5 packs! That's up to 500 calories (1200 calorie diet anyone? That only leaves you with 700 for the rest of the day!) and up to 9 grams of fat. Not for me. I dig string cheese, but mostly packing up some veggies to munch on or fruit. Makes much better sense to me.

Yeah, and I am sure 100 Calories Snack packs are a sponsor of the biggest loser.

I love string cheese! It is one of my favorite snacks. I am a cheesehead (even though I live in MN)! ;)

Bob probably thinks they are a good idea because he gets paid for advertising for them. (Just my thought.) I don't think this is the first time I've seen Bob advertise before. Not only that, but he's also the only trainer that put out the Biggest Loser workout dvd's and the books. (Notice Jillian doesn't do any of that.) I think Bob has dollar signs in his eyes. :)
