Eating late at night can have an impact on your weight and your health. Lifehack recently offered readers
some suggestions for healthy snacks to eat at night.
1. Popcorn : This movie night favorite is loaded with whole grains and fiber, yet doesn't have a lot of calories. The trick is to make your popcorn from scratch on the stove or by using an air popper. Try different seasonings to change up your popcorn game.

2. Fruit : If you tend to get a sweet tooth at night, fruit might be just the thing for that midnight craving.
Fruits like strawberries, peaches and honeydew melon are all lower in sugar and make great nighttime snacks.

3. Rice Cakes : These light and crunchy snacks are great on their own or used as a base for your favorite nut butter. These low calorie snacks don't come with a lot of nutrients, which makes the toppings you choose even more important for adding some nutritional value.
4. Veggies : If chips are your late night weakness, air-fried or dehydrated veggies may be a healthy alternative.
5. Nuts : A handful of nuts can help curb cravings at any point in the day. For nighttime snacking, try nuts like almonds and pistachios that have high levels of melatonin and antioxidants.

The trick is finding something that can satisfy your cravings without sacrificing your health and nutrition goals.
