  • Pretzels, trail mix, almonds or peanuts.
  • Low-fat or fat-free popcorn.
  • Cheese- or peanut butter-filled whole wheat crackers.
  • Cereal bars or granola made with whole grains.
  • Dried cranberries, apricots or raisins.
  • Animal crackers or graham crackers.
  • 100 percent vegetable juice or 100 percent fruit juice.
