How to Healthy Snack after Dinner?

Healthy after dinner snacks

Looking for something to satisfy your late night munchies? Enjoy these delicious foods, known to provide health promoting nutrients for the least number of calories.


Grapes - were once considered to be the "food of the gods". Try a healthy sundae, serve a bowl of grapes topped with yogurt and granola or serve a snack of grapes and low-fat cottage cheese.

Healthy trail mix - combine 1 cup whole-grain toasted oat cereal with 1/4 cup chopped walnuts and 1/4 cup dried cranberries or raisins for a healthy trail mix.

Veggies and dip - Carrot/celery sticks dipped in low-fat hummus or make your own ranch dip of low fat plain yogurt and ranch seasoning.

Blueberries - ranked among the top fruits for antioxidant activity. Try fresh blueberries with yogurt: a bowl of blueberries, vanilla yogurt and 1 TBS of chopped walnuts

Apples - combine diced apple, low fat yogurt, chopped walnuts, raisins and honey for a healthy snack

Yogurt - High protein, low fat, promotes optimal health and beneficial bacteria. Make a fruit smoothie-blend banana, strawberries and iced cubes for a refreshing summer treat.

Air popped popcorn - If you have popcorn with no butter and just a little salt for flavour, it's a low calorie, low fat treat. Great munching for weight loss goals and perfect for a TV movie!

Oatmeal - rich source of dietary fiber, manganese and selenium. Pour boiling water over old fashioned rolled oats, add raisins, chopped walnuts, honey and some low-fat milk.

Goat cheese and whole grain crackers - spread some goat chees on grain crackers, put a piece of fresh fruit on top.
