My husband found a HUGE back of chopped raw broccoli at Costco, so I bring that to work and dip it in peanut butter. I know it sounds weird, but it's no crazier than peanut butter on celery.
I also eat a lot of baby carrots and air popped popcorn. I recently tried the popcorn with about 1/8 cup of sugar free caramel ice cream topping.Like caramel corn, but I ate it with a spoon because it is messier than regular caramel corn.

A favorite sweet snack is to take 3 dates, remove pits and stuff them with walnut halves (or pecans or almonds). That plus a cup of tea.

An easy 'sandwich' is a smear of fat-free refried beans on a whole grain wrap. One daughter likes it just like that, or with some shredded cheese on it. I like it with a slice of fat-free Kraft American.

lately, an apple using laughing cow light swiss wedge as a dip seems to work.

My yummy snack as of late has been a warm apple (cored and in wedges - in the microwave for 60 seconds) - then sprinkle with cinnamon. The kids have been watching me have them and have started asking for them as their dessert! (Pretty good for a six year old and an eight-year old to be asking for an apple for dessert! I like it.)

As for sandwiches, we aren't allowed doing peanut butter (kids in the school have allergies) - so we stick with the ol' standby - ham and cheese. I buy the fat-free ham at the deli and slice up cheese. My kids like using hummus instead of mayo and adding apple slices. It's a different kind of sandwich! We also make mini-subs on whole wheat hotdog buns. Again - fat-free ham, cheese but this time with lettuce, tomato and black olives. Of course- to really be different you can always pack a thermos and go for soup!

My son and I love a 6 inch wrap spread with a thin layer of peanut butter, sprinkled with a little cinnamon sugar and a whole bananna all wrapped up for lunch. It's yummy. My daughter hates bananas so we like to do bagels with turkey on them for her.

I also try to a lot of carrots and nuts on hand to snack on. Fresh fruit is always good. We have big bowl of washed fruit in our kitchen and the kids actually eat it. Of course, they eat it after all the "not good for them" snack are gone, but I don't buy much of that. My kids also like those Go-gurt yogurts and Mini Babybel light cheese.

Does anyone have any good ideas for sandwiches. Kid's usual lunch is sandwiches, but we all getting bored with usual stuff. What kind of sandwiches to your kids eat?

I've been trying the whole handful of nuts thing for myself. You hear so much about how great nuts are for you and how filling they are...I figured I'd try it for myself. So far, so good! For my kids, I always have low fat string cheese and yogurt on hand.

Baby carrots and granola bars are my addiction! When I feel that I need a dip of some sort for the carrots, I use Walden Farms dressings. They are sugar free, calorie free, gluten free, fat free, carbohydrate free, cholesterol free, and no preservatives!

ANGELMON09 sent me a great suggestion in an email - why not start a thread about healthy snack ideas? We are all busy - what do you suggest to have on hand that's easy (and healthy!) to grab. For kids lunchboxes, snacks on the go - or even ourselves!
