5 Ways to Turn Snacks Into a Meal

When the family schedule is packed with practices and activities right after school and work, sometimes dinner has to be on-the-go instead of around the table. These simple snack meals (which are all about 300 calories) can be made in minutes, but since they’re packed with protein and fiber, they’ll keep you full for hours.

1. Better for you Pimiento Cheese Celery Sticks 

Greek yogurt and reduced-fat Cheddar cheese turn this favorite party spread into a lightened-up, protein-packed snack, perfect for pairing with crunchy celery. 

2. Peanut Butter Oats 

Just add a scoop of peanut butter and a few antioxidant-rich raspberries to high-fiber oats for a “breakfast for dinner” snack that keeps you going. 

3. Toast with hummus and hard-boiled egg 

Instead of a regular egg salad sandwich, mix it up and top whole-grain toast with hummus and an egg to make a high-protein powerhouse of a snack. 

4. Mini peppers stuffed with guacamole 

All of the flavor with none of the mess! Stuff sweet mini peppers with guac for a portable veggies-and-dip option that’s fun to eat and keeps energy levels high. 

5. Caprese Quesadilla 

Use the toaster oven to quickly bake up this packable, kid-friendly snack, stuffed with a double dose of sundried and fresh tomatoes.
