As a child it was demanded that we go out on the 5th and clean the street and yard of every piece of debris. When the kids groused about it last year I told them to pretend it was and Easter egg hunt. They went hog-wild trying to find the most "eggs" and yelling "I found another egg".
I haven't tried this with other things such as picking up toys but I suppose it could work for that too.
Measure out your snacks and put them in the little snack-size bags that are available. One serving of animal crackers, usually about 16, fit perfectly. Or a cup of air-popped corn. A serving of Goldfish!
You can also fit a serving of nuts into a plastic Easter egg!
However you do it, and whatever your dry snack, you will be prepared to grab one and go.
Whenever I eat something unplanned at work, I immediately send my personal email account a quick note describing what I ate. It could be as small as two chocolate Easter eggs, or as big as a slice of cake (odd that it's never vegetables!). When I get home, I enter it into my nutrition tracker.
This keeps me from forgetting to record small nibbles here and there into my nutrition tracker. Sometimes, it's the small things that add the most calories (those two chocolate Easter eggs totalled more than 100 calories!).
