By Sara Nelson on Oct 19, 2020

Weight Watchers Snacks

Weight Watchers is a point-based diet that promotes making slight adjustments to routine eating habits to lose weight and feel your best.

When you follow any weight loss plan, you may find yourself craving a midday snack. Thankfully, there are many choices that will fit in perfectly with your diet or lifestyle. 

We’ve compiled dozens of low-point (and potentially zero point) options to keep your hunger at bay while steering clear of high-fat and high-sugar snacks. Take the WW personal assessment quiz to figure out your tailor-made WW PersonalPoints system and start eating healthier today.

Now get out your grocery lists because here are 43 low-point Weight Watchers snacks!

LOW-POINT WEIGHT WATCHERS SNACKS

1. A cup of fresh cherries

Unsweetened and unprocessed cherries are a great snack option when you follow a WW diet. They're a great source of calcium, fiber, and folic acid. A cup of cherries would typically be about 21 pieces depending on the size of each individual cherry.

When shopping for cherries, look for ones that have their stems intact and are shiny, plump, yet firm.

2. Melon balls with mint

Melons are packed with nutrients and would make a refreshing snack. They come loaded with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and water. So, not only will this fruit stave off your hunger, but it can also aid in quenching your thirst.

It's quite easy to shape melons into balls! All you have to do is use a Parisienne scoop, also commonly referred to as melon baller, and then add some chopped fresh mint to boost their flavor.

3. Fruit kebabs

If you're looking for something fun, refreshing, and healthy to serve your family, then why not make them some fruit kabobs? Just skewer any 0-point fruit like apples, bananas, kiwi, mangos, and pineapples, chill in the fridge, and serve!

4. Mixed berries

Berries are a food that you can enjoy on a variety of diets and they count as a Weight Watchers free food. They're naturally sweet and tart, which makes them perfect for making shakes and fruit salads. Berries also contain impressive amounts of nutrients that help improve cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels.

5. Fresh figs

Fresh figs have long been used to alleviate digestive problems such as constipation, thanks to their high fiber content. Figs are harvested between summer and early fall, so make sure you get some while they’re available fresh as dried figs cost many more PersonalPoints per serving because of their high sugar and calorie content.

A serving would be about 2-3 figs, depending on their size.

6. Watermelon slices

Much like cantaloupes, watermelons are also refreshing and full of nutrients. One cup of watermelon only has 46 calories per cup but has high amounts of vitamin C, carotenoids, lycopene, and fiber. 

7. Chilled grapes and sugar-free lime Jell-O

Store-bought fruit cups don't count as safe Weight Watchers snacks because they use sugar-based syrups. So, here's a safer alternative! Buy some grapes, preferably the seedless variety, and make some sugar-free Jell-O. Add a few grapes in a small cup and pour in the Jell-O, chill in the fridge until set, and you're done!

8. Frozen non-fat Greek yogurt-covered blueberries

Weight watchers low point snacks shouldn't be limited to fresh fruits and raw veggies! In fact, you can jazz it up with some non-fat Greek yogurt.

Now, you can either top your yogurt with some blueberries or dip the blueberries in some non-fat Greek yogurt then freeze. Honestly, the latter would be a very fun way to enjoy this snack, especially since your kids can join in and make their own.

9. Flourless sugar-free pumpkin pancakes

Who doesn't love breakfast-themed snacks? Make these fall special pancakes without wasting your points budget! Just mix together 3 eggs, ¼ cup pumpkin puree, and a teaspoon of monk fruit sweetener. Cook it as you would normal pancakes and enjoy!

10. Flourless sugar-free pancakes

If pumpkin pancakes aren't your thing, you can make these banana pancakes instead. In a bowl, whisk in 3 eggs, a mashed banana, and a teaspoon of monk fruit sweetener. It's super easy!

11. Sugar-free gummy bears

There are a lot of sugar-free gummies on the market now, so you won't run out of options. SmartSweets are a good brand to try since they sweeten their gummy treats with stevia. Plus, they also come in a variety of fun shapes and flavors.

12. Dill pickles

Dill pickles are the perfect guilt-free snack because they contain 0-point ingredients: just fresh cucumbers, salt, water, vinegar, and other spices. Due to their salty-sourness, dill pickles can also curb your appetite while also providing your body with about 3-6% the amount of B vitamins, iron, and potassium it needs.

13. Nori

Seaweed sheets, also known as nori, are a staple in Korean and Japanese cuisine. They make an amazing go-to snack, especially for those following the WW PersonalPoints program. It has a light salty flavor and contains high amounts of nutrients such as fiber, magnesium, and potassium.

14. Kimchi

Kimchi might be an acquired taste, but it sure is good for you! Research suggests that this nutrient-rich dish supports intestinal health by improving the levels of good bacteria in the gut.

A 1-cup serving of kimchi has approximately 23 calories, 2 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein, and is packed with a variety of other nutritional benefits.

15. Cucumber slices with smoked salmon

Slice a fresh cucumber into circles and then top them with some smoked salmon, which is something that you can typically find in the protein section of your grocery store. They are guaranteed to rock your taste buds without messing up your daily PersonalPoint budget.

16. Baked egg cups

If you're short on time, but need a quick yet nutritious snack, why not make a few baked egg cups? Scramble up some eggs, add in some onions and tomatoes, then pour into the cavities of a silicone muffin tray, and bake. Simple, yet filling!

17. Low-point salsa

If you're looking for a delicious and simple way to make salsa that fits your Weight Watchers lifestyle, then you've got to try this. It's the perfect guilt-free dip! It requires just 7 simple ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time to make.

18. Roasted chickpeas

Hummus isn't the only way to enjoy chickpeas. You can roast chickpeas up in the oven until golden and then lightly season them with salt and spices for added flavor. A half-cup serving of roasted chickpeas is 0 on Weight Watchers Freestyle, but note that it does count as 3 points for the stricter green plan.

19. Chomps mini beef jerky sticks

For the times you are craving something savory, high in protein, and free from any added sugar, these mini jerky sticks will hit the spot every time!

20. Almonds (7 pieces)

Almonds make a good quick snack when you're on the Weight Watchers diet. We'd suggest limiting to 7 pieces per serving though to ensure that you don't go through your daily points too quickly.

21. Two stalks of celery and 1 tablespoon hummus

You can enjoy a 1-point snack by dipping some celery stalks in hummus. Coincidentally, the point consumption stays the same even if you use carrot sticks instead of celery since both veggies are on the 0-point list.

22. 1 stick of Sargento light mozzarella string cheese

Just because you're on the Weight Watchers diet doesn't mean you have to abandon your love for cheese. This brand will usually only cost you a couple PersonalPoints per stick.

23. Air-fried falafels

These air-fried falafels are another way you can enjoy chickpeas without breaking your PersonalPoint bank! You can make some of these in advance and just cook whenever you need a crunchy, wholesome snack.

24. Shelled pistachios (22 pieces)

If you don't have peanut allergies, then pistachios are probably one of the best Weight Watcher snacks to buy when stocking up your pantry. They taste great when they're roasted and lightly salted. Pistachios also have a long shelf life if stored properly, which makes them an excellent choice to keep in your office for a workday snack.

25. Goldfish snack crackers, baked cheddar (30 pieces)

These cheesy baked crackers made this list because they don't contain sugar and are perfect for when you need something savory and crunchy. Plus, these crackers are kid-friendly and school-safe.

26. 3 oz. deli-sliced turkey with sliced tomato on 1 slice whole-wheat bread

Don't let anybody tell you that an open-faced sandwich doesn't count as a snack... especially when it only costs you a couple PersonalPoints per serving!

27. Carrot sticks with 2 tablespoons fat-free ranch dressing

Carrots don't eat up many PersonalPoints, but the ranch dressing is a different story. Make sure you pick the fat-free variant when you're grocery shopping so you don't end up using your points by accident.

28. Dark chocolate PB oat energy balls

These energy balls are a great way to fuel your body when you have a quick errand to run. They're made with straightforward ingredients and don't require a whole lot of effort to make.

29. Portabello mushroom pizzas

Of course, there's pizza! Mushroom pizzas to be exact. Make sure you use low-fat cheese and unprocessed deli to top your pizzas to ensure smarter PersonalPoint spending.

30. 3 oz. shrimp with 3 tablespoons cocktail sauce

Depending on the size, 3 ounces of shrimp is about 3 to 4 pieces, which is more than enough to satisfy a craving or keep you satiated until your next full meal.

31. Sliced extra lean deli-style turkey rolled into bite-sized pieces

If you're craving some extra protein, try some extra lean deli turkey rolled up into bite-sized pieces!

32. Oven-baked turkey scotch eggs

Have you tried a scotch egg yet? Well, it's not too late to add this to your list of potential snacks. Make sure you use ground turkey to coat the eggs to keep it on the leaner side.

33. Chomps original beef sticks

Protein- and flavor-packed, these beef jerky sticks are the perfect snack to add to your snack rotation! They are shelf-stable and are a great option for times you need a quick bite while on-the-go.

34. Apple slices with 1 tablespoon peanut butter

Apples are generally considered zero points so really, the only thing you're using your PersonalPoints on is that tablespoon of peanut butter.

35. Jolly time healthy pop (butter flavor)

Want to cuddle up and watch some Netflix and need something to munch on that won't deplete your PersonalPoints? Pop some popcorn without worry! A single cup serving of this microwavable butter popcorn isn't a heavy burden on your points budget..

36. SkinnyPop popcorn

Care for more hassle-free popcorn? SkinnyPop is an easy choice to make! It costs the same PersonalPoints as a Jolly Time healthy pop, but at least you can skip a step and get right to snacking. This would also be a great road trip snack as it's ready-to-eat right out of the bag.

37. Weight Watchers triple decker chocolate baked protein bar

Protein bars are another great Weight Watchers option, especially the ones made by Weight Watchers themselves. There are several varieties that you can choose from at their shop, but triple chocolate is the fan-favorite.

38. Baked eggplant sticks

You can't go wrong with these Italian cuisine-inspired baked-until-golden eggplant sticks. They're crunchy, savory, and would go well with some low-point marinara — snack heaven!

39. Caprese salad

Have some fresh mozzarella sitting in your refrigerator? Why not make it into a hearty snack? You can whip up this simple 5-ingredient caprese salad in under 10 minutes and it uses up just a few PersonalPoints across all Weight Watchers plans.

40. Open-faced smoked salmon and cream cheese muffin

Open-faced sandwiches are amazing and such a great snack option! Try whipping yourself one of these, all you need is some smoked salmon slices, cream cheese, and half an English muffin.

41. Jicama fries

Surprise! You can have fries! This version is a lot lighter compared to the ones made out of potatoes and has higher nutritional value too. It also complies with several other diets so you can share some with family and friends... or don't, it's up to you!

42. Planters cocktail peanuts (1 serving)

Not in the mood for almonds, pistachios, or any other kind of nuts except peanuts? You can trade a handful of PersonalPoints for just 1 serving then! A single 28g-serving of Planters cocktail peanuts is equivalent to roughly 28 peanuts.

43. Teddy Graham snacks (10 pieces)

If you have a lot of points leftover and just can't shake off your teddy graham cookie cravings, then go ahead and grab yourself 10 teddies, which will use up a few PersonalPoints across all Weight Watchers plans.

CONCLUSION

Some days, a snack is a necessity to help tide you over until your next meal. With these Weight Watchers' snack ideas, you'll be able to curb your hunger, maintain your energy throughout the day, and continue to work towards your health and weight loss goals, all while eating some delicious food!
