Me-time munchies

The next time you need to take a time-out and enjoy a quick moment that's all about you, treat yourself to one of these quick and easy snacks.

Frozen banana

Banana slices

When your bananas start to turn brown, peel them and freeze them in a plastic freezer bag. Grab a frozen banana from the freezer whenever you're craving a cold, creamy treat.

Cheese wedge

Give yourself a shot of calcium and protein with a bite-size piece of cheese. Cheese wedges, cheese sticks or wax-covered Babybel rounds are quick and easy snacks.

Dark chocolate truffle

A smooth milk chocolate, extra-dark chocolate, caramel or peanut butter Lindt LINDOR truffle is the ultimate way to enjoy 30 seconds of pure indulgence. Choose your favorites from 18 available flavors.

Bowl of cereal

Bowl of cereal

Dig into a small bowl of cereal with ice-cold milk when late-night hunger strikes.

Yogurt cup

Grab an individual serving of Greek yogurt for a protein-packed snack. Stir in fresh fruit or save time and try the new Fage fruyo, which has the fruit already mixed in.

Nutrition bar

Be prepared and keep a stash of nutrition bars on hand for between-meal snacking. Even use them as a meal replacement when you just don't have time to sit down for lunch.

Protein shake

Grab a few cartons of protein shakes and treat yourself to a boost of energy when you need it. Svelte cappuccino protein shakes taste like milkshakes and help you make it through a busy day.

Kettle corn

Kettle corn

Satisfy your salty-sweet craving with a few handfuls of kettle corn. Go for the single-serve bags made by Popcorn Indiana, to keep portions under control.

Mango cubes

Frozen mango cubes can be eaten right out of the freezer, or you can pack them in a bag to defrost just in time for your midmorning snack.

Fruit sauce pouch

Convenient and mess-free fruit sauce pouches are all the rage for kids and babies, but they're also quite handy for moms on the go. The Happy Squeeze Coco Strawberry pouch delivers a tasty burst of fruit smoothie blended with coconut milk.
