I like this list, but to make some of them what I'd consider a "snack" I'd have to cut the portion in half. Who needs an entire cup of yogurt or applesauce in one sitting? (I'm assuming measuing cup, not the small plastic single serving container). A snack at 200 calories to me is begging to be rounded out and made a small meal. I am loving some of the suggestions closer to 100 calories though.
There are several I could just add a piece a fruit and I'd have breakfast. 2 whole grain waffles is a snack? Grab a banana and it's breakfast. Same with the oatmeal & english muffin. Others I could add veggies or lean protein for a nice lunch. I'm definately getting some ideas, but more for light meals than snacks.
And I'd have to argue with how "healthy" a few of these are. Homemade banana bread (cake), a fruit & nut bar (what kind? All fruit & nut bars I've seen are basically candy bars in a box), and pretzles?? Really? Calorie packed, high sodium carb bombs with no nutritional value. Now, you can eat just about anything in moderation, but just because it's a small portion doesn't mean you can call it healthy. :)
