Homemade Weight Watchers Snacks
Some of these have videos that I have included, well because I LOVE seeing things actually being made! So be sure to check those out too!
Berries are zero points and crazy delicious. Raspberries, strawberries, blue berries, etc. Buy them fresh at your local farmers market and serve them over non fat frozen yogurt for a mid day snack or dessert. They are amazing!!
Veggies & Ranch
Don't forget to try the Pumpkin Spice version too!
Oranges go great with everything. Slice up an orange and add it to your drink, serve it in a sale or just eat orange wedges by themselves. Talk about crazy flavorful and absolutely zero points.
Store-Bought Weight Watchers Snacks
Some of the snacks below have pictures or links just in case you aren't familiar with them. Also, I have added little tidbits if I know of places that you can buy them for cheaper, something unique, or just little extras that may be helpful for you!
Mini Pretzels (19 for 3 points)
Lays Poppables (30 for 5 points)-I LOVE that the ones above on the left are the single-serve bags, this is super convenient. But the ones on the right are a deal from Amazon compared to my local store!
Chips (mini/bite size Tostitos 24 for 4 points) and Salsa
Rice Cake with 1 tbsp of peanut butter (4 points)
Low fat cottage cheese with fruit (3 points)
Smart Pop Popcorn (single serving bag 3 points) Though most popcorn is WeightWatchers friendly and low in calories – I personally love Safe + Fair's Strawberry Cheesecake Popcorn.
Goldfish (55 pieces for 4 points)
Quaker Apple Cinnamon Rice Crisps (13 for 5 points) There are several varieties, but this one is my favorite! It's a sweet snack and with the lower points and the crispness, it kind of takes the place of potato chips and a sweet craving at the same time!
Laughing Cow spreadable cheese with mini peppers (1 point)
Almonds (¼ cup for 4 points)
Pringles single-serving cups (4 points)
Parmesan cheese Whisps (15 for 4 points) These are really good for snacks! If you are looking for them locally check Target or Whole Foods.
Nabisco Good Thins (41 pieces for 3 points)
Pickles (ZERO points)
Oh Snap Pickles (ZERO points)
Dannon Light and Fit Greek Yogurt (2 points)
Fruit and Lite Whipped cream (4 points)
Sugar-Free Jello Pudding mixes (¼ = a serving, 1 point each)
Pillsbury Sugar-Free Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread (3 points per serving) Most of the time when I buy this I usually get it at Walmart or Target
Chex Mix (½ cup for 4 points)
Teddy Grahams (13 pieces for 5 points)
Trader Joes Veggie Sticks (50 for 4 points)
Baked Cheetos (34 for 4 points)
Rice Krispy Treats (1 bar for 4 points)
Apples with Sugar-Free Smuckers Caramel Sundae Syrup (3 points for 2 tbsp) Be sure to check the end caps around the ice cream section or the aisle with the peanut butter and jelly!
Snack Box (2oz of deli turkey, Sargento Light Mozzarella string cheese, your choice of fruit, hard-boiled eggs-2 points) I LOVE these Bento Boxes! They are especially great when you want a reusable lunch container, and comes with a spoon and fork! Perfect for kids and adults!
Weight Watchers Snacks to Stay Away From
If you use the WW app you know that there is a barcode option where you can scan snack foods while you are at the store. Some of these may ring in at 6 points like the others on the list, but the kicker here is the serving size.
For instance, Chicken Ramen Noodles. We all know if you heat up that small square block of noodles your intention is to eat ALL of it. Who can blame us? It’s packaged as a convenient single serving. While it rings up for 6 points, that is for ½ the package. So if you eat all of it you are looking at a 12 point snack!
There's also the infamous smoothie debate. The Freestyle program says that fruit and vegetables (fresh, frozen or canned without added sugar) is ZERO points. But if you were to track a fruit smoothie, the point values ARE THROUGH THE ROOF.
The reason for this is because according to some studies, smoothies that are drinkable are less likely to keep you full versus if you were to actually eat everything as it is. This may lead to overeating later. For more information on this, see how Weight Watchers explains it.
Some people track the points for smoothies, are still keep it at zero for the fruits and vegetables. This is a personal choice, but if you are drinking them all the time, you may want to rethink the point values.
Stay away from these Weight Watchers Snacks:
- Packaged Fruit Cups with Artificial Syrups
- Fruit Loaded Smoothies
- Sodas/Fruit Juices
- Potato Chips
- Frozen Pizzas
- Ramen Noodles
- Carb filled protein bars
Tips for Portioning Weight Watchers Snacks
We all know that sometimes snacking can get OUT OF CONTROL. So be sure to use these tips that will help you with your snack habits, especially on Weight Watchers.
- Portion out snack foods in Ziploc bags or reusable containers.
- Be mindful of serving sizes.
- Pre track your snacks. Know the points BEFORE you buy and portion the snacks
- Meal prep is your BEST FRIEND. Set aside time each week.
- Mark your portioned foods when you meal prep. If you use Ziploc bags, use a Sharpie to go ahead and write the points on there. If you are using snack boxes, you can always use a piece of tape and write on it.
- Carry snacks with you or keep them at work. You will be less likely to overindulge at the next mealtime or worse, stop and get fast food!
- Along with snacking comes water intake, read more about that here.
- Limit processed foods. This is a given and the beauty of WW is that you can eat whatever you want as long as you stay within your point range, but we know that processed foods are crap for our health.
