    I save square baby food containers, the stage 2 & 3 are usually 1/2 c. each and make the perfect container for snacks. They stack nicely in the fridge. We use them for puddings, jello, applesauce, yogurt, or dip (no double dipping.) Great for each child to have their own and great portion control.

    I WAS GETTING READY TO POST WHEN I SAW djksin's POST, LOL. I PAY PEOPLE WHO DON'T USE THE GERBER BABY FOOD CONTAINERS, 5 CENTS EACH. I LOOK AT IT LIKE RECYCLING PAY. I LOVE THESE CONTAINERS FOR MY 100-150 CALORIE SNACKS AND HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR SEVERAL YEARS. I HAVE A LOT OF FAMILY MEMBERS WHO COME THROUGH AND THESE ARE A QUICK GRAB & GO. THANKS FOR THE ADDITIONAL SNACKING IDEAS.

    Here are 10 of my favorite homemade 100 calorie snack ideas:


    1. Jicama & Honey Mustard dip- 1 1/2 cups of jicama peeled and sliced, (this is a root veggie that has 6 grams of fiber per cup!) eat it mixed in 1 Tbs Greek Yogurt, 1 Tbs Mustard, 1 tsp honey
    2. Cocoa dusted almonds (12)
    3. 10 Lg Shrimp boiled in lime juice and sprinkled with chili powder
    4. Frozen Grapes
    5. Pumpkin Yogurt (1/2c. plain yogurt 1/4 c. pumpkin puree, 3 drops stevia, 1/4 tsp cinnamon) or Maple Pumpkin Yogurt 1/2 c. plain yogurt, 2 TBS pumpkin puree, 1 tsp maple syrup
    6. Watermelon Salad - 1 c. fresh spinach, 1 tbs balsamic vinegar, 3/4 c. diced seedless watermelon
    7. Rice Cake smothered in almond butter
    8. Coconut covered kiwi slices- slice 1 kiwi and top it with a TBS of shredded coconut
    9. 1 Fig newton spread with a tsp of peanut butter
    10. Spiced orange- an orange sprinkled with cinnamon

    If you want a low calorie snack most dry cereals are low calorie, for as much as you get to eat. Try mixing a couple together for a trail mix type snack. Most are around a hundred for a cup to 1 cup even the sugary ones.

    My go to low cal snack is popcorn, instead of using butter I spray with a little butter flavored cooking spray olive oil would work also but I do not like olive oil. Toss in garlic and a touch of Parmesan. I admit I do use real butter once in a while.

    Thanks for the article since I forgot I already had the Ziploc cups. I am using them to put 100 calories of Chex Mix and bran cereal.

    I like making turkey pepperoni slices crispy in the microwave then scooping up laughing cow cheese with them. If I remember right 14 slices and a wedge of cheese is less than 150 calories.

    I use the Ziploc cups to store homemade pudding. I usually make chocolate when I need a fix without adding a lot of unwanted calories and other junk.

    These are some of our favorites:

    -Make a low fat hummus and fill snack cups with 3/4 cup and have fresh veggies portioned out in snack size baggies.

    -About 4 tbsp low far Ranch dip with fresh veggies portioned out in snack size baggies.

    - A whole snack container of Sugar free jello -made with fresh fruit.

    -Home made chex mix with peanuts-about 1/2-3/4 cup

    -Celery stuffed with Laughing Cow Cheese-Light. It won't fit in the small snack size containers but WILL fit in a sandwich zip top bag OR
    stuffed with natural (no sugar added) peanut butter.

    -Sliced apple with 1 tbsp natural (no sugar added) peanut butter

    -Low fat cheddar cheese slices

    -Light cottage cheese and veggies...

    Frankly, most of my 100 calorie snacks work well in a Snack size Ziploc bag. But everybody stole my snack ideas! ;-( jk
