Best College Snacks – Cheap and Healthy


Are you wondering what the best college snacks are for a student – something that is cheap but also healthy? Ramen noodles sure are cheap, but they are pretty unhealthy for you with all that sodium. Other snacks like candy, chocolate and potato chips will also work towards giving you a “Freshman 15.” You don’t have to eat unhealthy just to save money – there are actually some inexpensive snacks that are also healthy for college students.

Here are some good ideas on how to eat healthy with snacks – my top 5 healthy college snacks:

#5 *Protein or Health Bar – These might seem expensive but some brands are actually tasty and cheap at the same time.

#4 *Rice Cakes – Eat these plain and they might not have much taste, but you can put almost anything on them such as peanut butter and jelly or any dips. They are very inexpensive and have little calories.

#3 *Healthy Chips Like ‘PopChips’ – I love PopChips, which are great tasting chips that have half the fat of normal potato chips. They are neither fried nor baked – they are “popped” or cooked using high pressure.

#2 *Healthy Popcorn – My favorite is by Smart Balance, which contains 0 grams of trans fat, 2 grams of fat and very little calories per serving at about 120 calories! Popcorn is easy to make and always make a great late night snack, without feeling guilty about it.

#1 * Pretzels With Hummus – If you’ve never had hummus you should really give it a shot. I find mixing hummus with pretzels to be absolutely delicious! If you are unfamiliar, hummus is a middle eastern spread or dip that is made with mashed chickpeas and tahini. It’s high in iron, vitamin C, folate,vitamin B6, protein and dietary fiber!
