No one wants to give up snacks when cutting calories, so we have made it easy so you don't have to, with a list of snacks under 100 calories!
Popcorn is a great healthy snack, whether you like sweet or salty, or maybe even both!
You can get your hands on a range of popcorn brands that are under 100 calories, including Propercorn’s Lightly Sea Salted which has just 88 calories per serving. Or Metcalfe's Sweet and Salty popcorn with 96 calories per pack!
Fresh fruit and nut Butter
One of the healthiest snacks is fruit, but sometimes it doesn't seem as exciting and a bar of chocolate. You can make it more fun by chopping up your fruit of choice and serving it with some nut butter, for example apple and peanut butter, this comes to just 96 calories and has lots of nutritional value.
Low-fat Greek yoghurt
Greek yoghurt is one of the healthiest yoghurts you can get, especially low fat versions if you’re trying to lose weight. They contain a large amount of protein and are low in calories too.
Some find that Greek yoghurt can be a bit boring when it's on its own. One way to make it extra delicious is adding fruit, frozen fruit heated up in the microwave for a minute creates a fruity syrup making it even better!
A 100g serving of low-fat Greek yoghurt is usually around 70 calories and has 5g of protein, giving you 30 extra calories for some fruit e.g., 50g of blueberries is just 28 calories (another snack idea if you don’t fancy the yoghurt).
Cheese lovers may fear that they can’t diet while eating their favourite food, but that's where they are wrong. You can get lots of cheesy snacks under 100 calories that are also high in protein!
- Light Babybel - 42 Calories; 5g Protein
- Cheesestrings - 61 Calories; 4.6g Protein
- Dairylea Dunkers Jumbo Tubes - 98 Calories; 3.9g Protein
- 20g of Reduced fat cheese with 40g of grapes- 48 Calories
Frozen banana pop
This is a great summertime snack and a perfect way to get more fruit into your diet. All you need to do is cut a banana in half, insert a popsicle stick, leave it in the freezer for a little bit and voila you have a tasty treat with just 80 calories!
Note: Frozen grapes are also a delicious snack!
Rice cakes might sound boring, but there are so many ways you can jazz them up. One plain unsalted rice cake is usually around 35 calories, which means you can add 12g of Nutella on top (65 calories) or 15g of reduced sugar jam (27 calories).
If you fancy something more savoury, you could add 15 g of cream cheese (51 Calories) or 30g of Tuna and Mayo (56 Calories).
Jelly is surprisingly low in calories and still hits those sweet spot cravings.
Hartley’s jelly pots are a great example, one 175g pot is just 10 calories and in a range of different flavours, including strawberry, orange, blueberry and blackcurrant, rhubarb and custard, raspberry and cherry, there are so many to choose from!
There are a range of different crisps that you can eat a whole packet of an still keep on track with your calories.
