Tip of the Day


100 Calorie Snack Packs

Why spend hard earned money on pre-packaged 100 calorie snacks? Here are some you can package yourself and always have ready for yourself or your kids' lunch box. Each of these will fit into a small snack zip lock bag which I buy at my local dollar store.
  • 1 small orange, peeled and sectioned
  • 2/3 cup of cocoa puffs cereal
  • 15 mini carrots
  • 3 tablespoons raisins
  • 6 reduced fat Triscuits
  • 1 cup of washed and cut celery slices
  • 12 soy crisps
  • 1 cup of watermelon
  • 13 Stauffer's animal crackers
  • 3/4 oz. cheddar cheese
  • 2 twizzlers stix
  • 7/8 cup of cheerios
  • 2/3 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cheese stick and 5 slices of shaved ham
