It's not always possible to ignore a growling tummy, but what to do if you can't get your hands on a healthy snack, like fresh fruit or a handful of nuts?
We trawled the Health Promotion Board's nutrient data to find 10 local snacks that contain less than 200 calories per piece or serving.
(Surprisingly, wholesome-sounding food like soya bean curd (tau huay) and red bean soup don't make the cut.)
Just remember to watch your portions, and have these once in a while!
