    The other day on Facebook I asked YOU guys for some healthy snack ideas. You had SO many great ideas, I thought I would post them here for those of you that aren’t on facebook. There were over 100 healthy snack ideas posted! I loved reading through all of them. This will be a great list to have when I’m tempted to pull out the junk food. Some of these snacks are long time favorites, and others I’m excited to try.

      This was great to wake up to-as an expecting mother always on the go, I feel like I am constantly scrambling for healthy snack ideas. Looking at this list reminds me of the variety out there-now if I can just remember this on grocery day! Also I will add my favorite-clementines. You can’t have just one!

      Just had a Kozy snack, rice pudding. Not a lot of additives I’m it and 120 calories. I think that could be added to the list as a healthy snack.

        Great idea! Thanks for sharing it to add to our list! :)
