Not all of you may know this but after having my son (about 2 years ago) I began a weight loss journey with Weight Watchers. I loved the program and lost 70 lbs! However, the warm weather, busy days, endless get-togethers and BBQs leave a gal with a creeping scale (I know you know what I’m sayin’). At this snacky time of year we are all looking for something to reach for when we’re feeling the crave, so today I thought I’d share with you my favourite low point Weight Watchers snacks. We all know the obvious- reaching for fruit and veggies is the best option, but while your friends are stuffing themselves with potato chips, know that reaching for one of these Weight Watchers snacks instead will put you on the lighter side of things.
Top 10 Weight Watchers Snacks:
1. Quaker Crispy Minis
2 Points for 12 chips
Lots of yummy flavours- love BBQ and Dill!
2. Brenton Popped Cracker Chips

Thanks Virginia! My favorite 3 point snack is a slice of bread toasted (2 pts) , spread with 1 tbsp low fat peanut butter (1 pt) with sliced bananas on top (free). It’s filling and it has foods from three food groups.

How did you have such great success on the program? I’m struggling!
I certainly had good weeks and bad. I totally didn’t drink alcohol for most of the year it took me to loose it, and I faithfully attended the meetings. I found having to look someone in the eye each week was better for my weight loss. Keep your head up it takes a while to get into the groove. Stick with it, drink lots of water and try to get a walk in a few times a week, it will start to fall off! Thanks for reading.

Love love!!! I have just begun mu WW process. 🙂 I am entering week 3! Question, are your calculations with points plus values or the old points system? Thx
My PP calculations were done 1 year ago. I don’t think the program has changed since. Good luck WW is such a great program!

Low points but seems like lots of junk food items, not much nutritional value in the majority of these, so you’re probably likely to feel hungry again shortly after the junk food rush passes. My WW leader–or maybe this is a WW-wide recommendation–suggested a fruit or vegetable with EVERY meal or snack, and also to “power up” meals and snacks with power foods, many of which are zero or very low points and are more likely to keep you fuller for longer. I personally have found greater success with that method than by snacking on crackers or low cal packaged foods, even though in the moment, they seem to do the trick, its usually temporarily, and not to mention full of weird chemicals.
I appreciate your feedback, and couldn’t agree with you more that having fruit and Vegetables are the best most filling options. However, the first paragraph of this post states that these options are recommendations for those times when others are snacking on chips, which we know are packed with points. These suggestions of snacks are the things I like to reach for when I’m at a party, camping, or watching a Friday night movie.
I AGREE! Sometimes you want a little junk!…. But don’t want to ruin your points!
That’s what I’m sayin’!
Thanks for all your tips. I really appreciate it! I am an emotional eater. My weight has gone up and down. I’ve found some meals that work for me but then I get bored with them or don’t take the time to fix them. I’m always looking for quick snack ideas so I don’t reach for the “bad stuff”. : )
I know all about it! Fixing the meal and grocery shopping are the biggest hurdles, good luck and Happy New year!
Like the Idea of fruit and veggie with Dip. For a football playoff game I took a low cal dip and veggie tray. I had everyone joining me eating veggies.
I always love a good veggie tray, if only i could just stick to that at a party 😉
Great ideas. I lost 60# on ww- and have maintained for four years now. Without snacks like these you would go nuts! I love fruits and veggies, and eat a bunch of both. But everybody needs fun snacks or fast snacks or sometimes something to make you feel like you’re eating what everyone else is!
I couldn’t agree more Leslie. Some of these have become my favourites, dieting or not!
Thanks for the ideas. Will the points be updated to the WW Smartpoints?
