But you can fight the hangry AND still hit those daily wellness goals by avoiding processed foods, keeping track of calories, or just generally aim for a balanced diet with these healthy snacks under 300 calories.

                    I am loving all of these options. I get such a snacky craving once I put the kids to bed and any of these look like the perfect way for me to snack without going overboard. You saved me!

                    • We totally get the cravings too once the kids are down for bed! I think it’s because we are so busy with them that we forget that we are hungry? And then it gets too late in the night to eat something big!
