  1. Contains les than 10 g of sugar
  2. Contains more than 3 g of fiber (natural fiber, not from resistant starch)
  3. Less than 3-5 g of fat

    Thank you for compiling this list of 100 calorie snacks. Being prepared to snack by having these foods on hand is helpful. Maybe make up several to keep in the frig for an afternoon treat.

    1. Yes that would be great so you always have them handy 🙂
