1FRUIT

Full of vitamins and fiber, fruit is one of the healthiest treats you can choose. If you’re bored with grabbing a single piece of fruit, try mixing several kinds into a fruit salad, freezing some grapes or baking an apple and topping it with cinnamon and nutmeg.

2Chewing gumYOGURT

Sweeten plain yogurt with honey or jam, or combine it with chopped fruit and granola to make a parfait (try one of the Greek yogurt brands – it’s especially good this way). Don’t want to sweeten and flavor plain yogurt yourself? There are plenty of tasty flavored yogurts in your supermarket dairy case, in both regular and sugar-free versions.

3GUM

Really? Gum? Chewing gum does more than freshen breath; it may also help to curb your appetite. You can stick with mint or cinnamon, or even bubble gum, or you can try Wrigley’s Extra Dessert Delights gum in mint chocolate chip, Key Lime pie and strawberry shortcake flavors.

4SUGAR-FREE FLAVORED SYRUPS

Use these to flavor seltzer, lemonade, coffee or protein shakes for a sweet and calorie-free beverage. Torani makes a variety of these syrups in yummy flavors like vanilla, caramel, raspberry and Irish cream.

5FLAVORED INSTANT OATMEAL

Not just for breakfast anymore, oatmeal makes a filling and healthy snack. Quaker makes lower sugar varieties with flavors like maple and brown sugar, and fruit and cream.
