I bought a box of snack size ziploc bags and started bagging snacks such as fruits and pretzels to take with me to work. This makes it easy for me to just grab and go. With two kids, time in the morning is precious. They even like having some grapes in a baggie. :)

I keep measuring cups, measuring spoons, etc., in a bowl in on my countertop. This makes it easy for me to find the measurer I want, without digging through drawers or dish drainers for them. It makes meal and snack prep much faster for me. A food scale in a handy spot also helps!
Using measuring cups, spoons, and a food scale help keep calorie and nutrient counts more accurate on days that I use the food tracker.
As soon as I get home from the grocery store I go ahead and prep my veggies for snacking.
I wash the fruits & veggies, cut them if necessary and store them properly for freshness. Then when I'm craving a snack I have everything already clean and ready to go! This makes healthy snacking convenient. Sometimes I just need a snack- quick! This does the trick!
