Healthy snacks for everyday

Can anyone recommend some healthy snacks for everyday/24/7 haha

I bought a big box of Goldfish to snack on when studying/chilling.

I was thinking about trying Cheezit next.


Any other suggestions? (cookies/crackers)

I googled healthy snacks and got a bunch of good stuff

Cheese Melt:
9 Healthy Pre-Dinner Snacks | Healthy Living | Food | 5 : RealSimple.com

Yogurt Parfait:
Yogurt Crunch

I usually eat fruit for a snack or Natural style popcorn (no butter!) with salt and a tiny twist of pepper...or I grab a granola bar.

If you just need something to munch on, but not looking for extra cals, I know it's been mentioned but grapes are really good....try muscat grapes! They are soooo good, although they take a bit of attention to eat.
Trailmix usually has lots of cals (that's why it's good to bring on camping/hiking trips - instant energy) so if you're trying to avoid a meal-sized snack you might want to double-check the trail mix stats.

I think multigrain Wheat Thins and Triscuits are relatively healthy crackers. Baked tomatoes sprinkled with garlic salt is sooo good, and I'm guessing healthy. But not cracker nor cookie....but you can put it on a multigrain cracker for a form of bruschetta! If you just need to stay alert, drink water.

I used to study while working through a row of Chewy Chipsahoy....and ended it with late-night instant noodles!

On my way home from class, I was really tempted to go to the student store and grab a bag of chex mix or something @_@

I did not luckily as I know I have a lot of food at home.

The baked tomatoes is really good too! But kind of got sick of it after eating so much ha!

I will try grapes! Kind of lazy to wash them and the sink is always dirty in apartment unfortunately

EDIT:
I also eat a lot of granola bars, coffee, multi-wheat, etc. Currently have some left over Rice Krispies, but limiting myself to only 1 a day.

I also have some Yoplait, 1 cup a day also.

OMG I must have tried one of these today because I sampled a grape at Whole Foods and it was amazing- tasted almost like a lychee fruit thingy. I MUST go back tomorrow and stalk these grapes!!

As for healthy snacks:

-Fage Total 0% yogurt with sliced banana and granola
-grapes/watermelon/plums/pears/ANY FRUIT!
-oatmeal with soymilk, splenda, and cinnamon
-rice cake with almond butter and honey or jam

Sorry dnicetr,

yoplait (almost every single type), goldfish, cheeze-its, m&m's, cheese sticks, granola bars (depending on brand), rice krispy treats (obviously), twinkies (obviously) are all not that great of choices.

And no fried Twinkies!! goofy Vis

and multi-grain wheat things and triscuits are surprisingly not that healthy.

Alissa and Zoki have great recommendations

Yeah, I hear you.

I try to eat it all moderately, small portions.

Probably the best things are fresh/fruits and veggies like carrots (w/o dressing). That's the best I can do.

But that's why I asked, so I can get suggestions from people here

So TY all.

EDIT:
I've been wanting to buy some big bucket of plain yogurt and mix it w/ already cut fruits and granola. I will try that next week when I go shopping!

haha it's cool. it's difficult to eat really healthy (and sometimes less tasty)

I like smart ones Peanut butter on anything. also, mission makes "carb balance" tortillas which kick ass. also, "bear naked" granola (in moderation). oh and most kashi stuff is pretty good.

Bolthouse farms is better

Zoki: Muscat grapes must be the ones I eat when I go to Asia. They're HUGE, super juicy and totally worth the peeling and seeds. I never knew what the name was in English! They're very aromatic, right?

Naked juices are pasteurized like any other juices. If you want to drink orange juice, eat oranges.

Omg. Hommous. SO GOOD. Tabboulei (sp?) and Fattoush salads are really good from this one Mediterranean place in Ann Arbor. I'm drooling just thinking about it....

They also make the most amazing dessert wine!

In addition to what everyone else has suggested...I would always have celery and low-fat peanut butter or something when I needed to feel full without that many calories...also, of all things, pickles are great for that! They have like 2 calories a piece lol.
