So whether you're packing snacks to take to the beach, or still stuck inside trying to curb your boredom-induced hunger, it's time to switch to some healthy options to brightening your day with a dose of tasty nutrients.

How to choose a healthy snack

So, what constitutes a good, healthy snack? "Ideally, snacks should be minimally processed, with either protein or fat paired with a carbohydrate," Brittany Modell, founder of Brittany Modell Nutrition and Wellness, says. Protein, fat and fiber are the keys to feeling satiated, says Monica Auslander Moreno, founder of Essence Nutrition, but many snacks on the market lean heavy on carbs, which, without other nutrients, can leave you even more hungry than when you started.

When you're browsing through endless snack options, there are few criteria to keep in mind. Start by reading the snacks' ingredients. The fewer, the better.

"Snacks should incorporate real and wholesome ingredients," Moreno says. She says "added sugar" is another part of the nutrition label you'll want to focus on (all packaged foods will clearly note the grams of added sugar by the middle of 2020). While many nutritious foods are naturally high in sugar (like dried mango, for example), you'll want to stick to snacks that have little to no additional added sugar.

Another label line to keep an eye on: Fiber. "Fiber keeps you full, helps balance blood sugar and assists in cholesterol metabolism," says Moreno. "I like to find a snack that has at least 4 grams of fiber per serving."

There's no doubt that browsing snack options online can be as overwhelming as it is exciting; bursting with flavor and possibility, the task of picking a nutritious nibble can be daunting. With assistance from nutritionists, we've put together a list of 17 snacks on Amazon that are just as delicious as they are healthy and nutritious.
