Chips. Pizza. Wings. These are some of the most common snacks brought to parties or potlucks, because they easily feed a lot of people and take very little time to prepare. They also make it harder to stick to a healthy eating plan. For National Snack Month, here are three low-prep, healthy alternatives to munch on during the next big game, get together, or movie night.

Avocado and cheese sandwich made with whole grain bread or toast. Avocados are a good source of vitamin E and C as well as being high in fiber and potassium. They also contain folic acid, an important vitamin for pregnant women. Cheese contains important levels of calcium and whole grain bread is high in fiber.

Fruit salad. You can combine any of your favorite fruits in this snack such as kiwi fruit, apples, pear, and nectarines. This snack can help you towards the recommended five servings a day of fruit and vegetables.

Hummus in pita bread. Hummus is made from dried chickpeas, garlic and sometimes tahini. Hummus contains fiber and iron; tahini is made from sesame seeds and is high in calcium.
