And while we love snacking on fruit, vegetables and nuts—plenty of packaged snacks are delivering health in a convenient package. Better yet, all of these snacks are available on Amazon and can be delivered right to your door. These dietitian-approved snacks are a mix of salty and sweet foods with healthy protein, fat, fiber and nutrients to keep you full for longer between meals.

For a better for you energy bar, try KIND bars. Their primary ingredient is nuts, packing these bars with protein, healthy fat and fiber for your longer days. They also have less than 5 grams of sugar, compared to some bars which have more than 20 grams. Women should aim to eat no more than 24 grams of added sugar per day (men around 36 grams). My personal favorite flavor is the Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt.

Looking for something crispy, crunchy and flavorful that isn't a potato chip? Look no further.
