Hi. There are a million ways to go with this. What have you been snacking on? What kinds of food do you like? Are these for at home, or snacks to take while you're out? And eating healthy means different things to different people. What does it mean to you? What does "effective" mean to you?

When I think of healthy snacks, I tend to think of crudités (cut up raw veg, like carrots, celery, cauliflower, etc.) with hummus or baba ganoush, or tzatziki for dipping.

You can't go wrong with nuts, or berries. Fresh fruits, especially those native to North America, and apples are great as well.

If you really want healthy, and you love meats, cheeses, and such, purchace a goog pork serloin roast, or pork tenderloin, or beef inside round, or bettr cut, and roast to a temp. of 145' F for the pork, 135 for the beef, and thinly slice it against the grain
Thinly slice chicken, turkey, or other fowl is great with good multi-grian bread.

Good soup that are rich in collagen, and veggies, and low in sodium can be a great snak as well.

I agree with Chief, that nuts and berries are superior snacks. I also look for whole grain/flax crackers that are awesome with nut butters or smoked oysters.

I also keep hard-boiled eggs on hand for quick snacks.

I buy frozen wild Maine blueberries and whisk them up in my mini blender with 1 pot of yogurt (usually vanilla or banana flavors) and a couple splashes of milk for one serving of a smoothie.

I was going to use a picture from King Oscar's website with my suggestion for their Kipper Snacks on very thinly sliced whole-wheat toast with guacamole. Turned out they're showing something similar on the Kipper Snacks Product Page.

My favourite snack is a hard-cooked egg.

Hi! Than you ever so much for your response!

I have started eating more nuts and fruits and will consider the items you have suggested to try

I'd go for nuts, fruit, vegetable sticks or greek yoghurt with berries. You could also add chia seeds into your drinks and food as they contain omega 3 which can increase good cholesterol.

Avocado is another good one. I put them on salads, in wraps or sometimes just eat them plain.
