Healthy Snacking

Lately I've been getting a lot of requests for healthy snack ideas. While you can buy those 100 calorie packs (or just pay attention to lables and serving sizes) of snack foods but there are other options that might be healthier and tastier!
Homemade hummus

A stalk of celery+1 tablespoon peanut butter is about 100 calories
A 1/4 cup of roasted pumpkin seeds is 75 calories.
1/2 cup of sorbet is about 100 calories or less
2 cups of cubed watermelon is about 85 calories
1 cup of blueberries is 90 calories
2 large plums are about 90 calories
Campbell's Soup at Hand chicken noodle is only 80 calories
1/4 cup of Craisins are about 100 calories
3 cups of air popped popcorn is about 90 calories
2 large (dill) pickles are only 25 calories
hummus and a small pita is about 100 calories
