The right between-meal snacks can help keep hunger at bay.

Snacks are an important part of a well-balanced diet and should contain healthy nutrients like calcium, protein, whole grains, vitamins or minerals. Aim for one to two snacks per day that are around 150 calories each. Skip those expensive, nutrient-light snack packs and try these 10 filling 150 calorie snacks instead.

Pair up Zucchini Snack Pizzas with 3 to 4 whole wheat crackers for a fiber and antioxidant-filled snack.
