Smartly Pack Your Snacks in Perfect Portions

Instead of toting the entire package of almonds to the office, keep between-meal munching in check by measuring out snacks before you’re ready to devour them.

Savvy packing can help:

• Use “snack size” plastic bags for crackers, pita chips, or other addictively salty/ crunchy items. • Layer yogurt, fruit, and nuts into 8-ounce jars with screw-top lids for parfaits to go. • Reach for muffin cup liners for portioning items that call for a “small handful” serving size, like nuts and dried fruit. • We love OXO Mini LockTop Containers for packing creamy yogurt dips and hummus.
