Snack packs are big business. But not all 100-calorie treats are nutritional powerhouses. If you want something that satisfies, saves money, and offers a nutritional boost, make your own pre-portioned snacks. Here are a few of our dietitians' top suggestions.

100-Calorie Snack: 3½ cups 94% fat-free microwaveable popcorn

Benefits: Popcorn has a lot of bulk for its calories, so it helps fill you up. Plus, 3½ cups contains one of your three recommended daily servings of whole grains.
