@jellyjellyjelly Oh – I think that would be a full meal!

If it puts off eating a meal by over an hour I figure anything under 150 calories q1ualifies as a a snack.
It can be an apple, an orange, grapes, toast, some salad, as long as it is washed down with water or unsweetened coffee or tea.

@jellyjellyjelly That would burn off a whole pizza.

A few bites-a few Cheetos, a few crackers with cheese, a few grapes.

A pint of Hagendaz butter pecan. With cake it’s a meal.

A small portion of food taken either as a meal or between two meals.

To me, a snack is a bit (not a “bite”) to eat to tide one over until mealtime. For me, usually in the prevening since I eat dinner at around 7:30/8 at night.

Also, it is not a snack if one has to dirty more than a plate or a paper towel and if you have to cook it more than in a toaster or microwave.

To me a snack is a mozzerella cheese stick.

That’s awful

I have a voracious appetite so I don’t really do snacks. Two cheese sandwiches and a glass of milk will do, thank you.

What kind of food is a snack or what do I eat as a snack?

What I will eat as a snack may be a piece of fruit, or some cheese and crackers, or a few bites of leftovers or some popcorn. Those are a few examples.

An orange or package of ramen. I prefer peanut butter cups.

To me a snack is a small low calorie meal or “snack foods” and it can be two distinct things. Some examples of a snack would be a piece of fruit, toast, boiled egg, some raw veggies, just to name a few. If can also be snack food, like potato chips, pretzels, and cheese, but those things can add up to be a lot of calories pretty fast and be more equivalent to a regular meal in the end if you eat too much of it. I think snacks should be less than 300 calories for the average person.

Only a half of a philly cheesesteak, instead of the whole.

Some good cheese and cashews. Maybe some berries as well.
