    Good: nuts, hard boiled eggs, cereal, milk, peanut butter, cheese. Things your great grandparents ate for snacks.

    Not so good: pastries, candy, meals in a box, red hot cheetos, sugary drinks.

    It isn't rocket science really. As long as you're eating real food, it's not so much precisely what you eat but how much in relation to calorie expenditure.

    Pea pods, carrots, dried chickpeas, low-fat yogurt, low-fat cottage cheese, bananas, cucumber slices, blueberries, low-fat ricotta cheese, hummus and almonds. Not all at the same time, of course.

    blending four berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries) with some other fruit such as a banana is a quick way to get a tasty (and good) chunk of your daily fruit/veggie intake.

    These are full of anti-oxidants, which are also great for removing toxins and clearing your skin.

    If you need a good blender, buy the self server Ninja. It's amazing.

    But you can combine them. Like red/orange bell peppers filled with yogurt or cottage cheese, or dipped in hummus. (And who has the time to slice cukes? Just eat them whole - and unskinned.

    Make it a Greek yougurt if you want more protein.
    Also agree with eggs.
    And lunch meat (avoid those heavily salted).

    Sweet potatoes / Yams, too, unless you're avoiding carbs. As I was preparing to leave the house (hungry) yesterday, I threw one in the microwave and then sliced it in half. Then ate it (similar to a banana but with the skin) in the car.

    A hand full of almonds (in place of oily peanuts). Baby carrots (in place of potato chips). Water with lime juice (in place of a Coke). Cottage cheese or fruit (in place of fries, when you're in a restaurant where they offer you that choice).

    These are things that work for me. Nothing new or Earth shaking in any of these!

    Assuming that a snack is dead, it cannot be healthy. Only a living organism can be healthy.

    So let's change the topic to HORRIBLE FARTS.
    Yeah, eggs will do that. Why? I can't be farting horrible horrible farts when I'm with my prince charming. Help!

    None, probably. However 'healthy' you think a particular snack may be, there always seems to be a catch: 'too much salt', 'too much sugar', 'too much fat', 'cholesterol-laden', 'carcinogenic', 'killer fungus', 'toxins', 'phthalates', 'phytic acids'.

    Honestly, eat what you like. Just don't overdo it.

    No! Just stop eating. Regardless of what one eats, someone will find something wrong with it. There is no food that everyone will consider healthful.

    I'm guessing OP is hoping for healthy crunchy carb snacks.

    No such thing I'm afraid.

    If you look at the stats of every unfried "diet" chip, pretzel and popcorn package you'll see that the calories (120 per tiny serving?), carbs and fat are almost identical. Perhaps the least of those evils is plain air-popped popcorn but that's not an all-you-can-eat guilt-free treat either; it'd also make you fat.

    Actually, here's the snack I'm eating right now: six hard boiled egg whites, two yolks, and for a special treat - slivered raw almonds and raisins:

    Twinks. Just be careful with bones. Give them to the dogs to bury in yard.

    Any nuts and seeds would be good, also yogurt!!! Personally I do love pomegranate seeds.
