Good snacks?

I love snacking and want to move away from snacking on junk food i.e. chips, sweets etc. as I''d like to loose some weight. Besides snacking on fruit &  veggies, what else can I snack on?

Dear Silver
Glad to hear that you are moving away from junk food. As mentioned you can snack on baby tomatoes, celery and carrot sticks and other raw or cooked vegetables, fresh and dried fruit (not more than 30g per day as dried fruit has a high energy content), wholewheat crackers like ProVita with fat-free cottage cheese (plenty of flavours to choose from), or Marmite, unbuttered popcorn (30g per day), or gherkins.
