Why should I plan for 1 Point snacks? 

If you have started using Weight Watchers to help get control of your diet, then these Weight Watchers 1 Freestyle Smart Point snacks are sure to be needed.

One of the best ways to tackle a new food management system is to be prepared with healthy, easy to use ideas that will give you the flavors and textures you love without the calories and fat.

These snacks are some obvious choices and also some great items you might not have thought to include in your plan. I like to prep snacks in advance so all I have to do is grab and go throughout the week.

How do I work snacks into my daily meal plan? 

I usually have a snack between meals. So I have one mid morning before lunch, one after lunch but before dinner, and sometimes after dinner before bed. It depends how many points I have left in my daily block but that is my typical strategy for snacks. 

Snacks like these that are just 1 Freestyle Smart Point are great because I know they won’t set me back drastically on my daily or weekly points. Having healthy snacks on hands means I can stay full and focused without sacrificing tons of points. 

Weight Watchers 1 Point Snacks

Light Mozzarella String Cheese: 1 Portion

Oreo Thins: 1 Cookie

Babybel Mini Light: 1 Cheese

Graham Crackers: 1 Square

Saltine Crackers: 4 Crackers

 

Mulitgrain Crackers: 2 Crackers

WASA Crisp & Light Crackerbread: 1 Pieces

Progresso Light Soups: 1 Cup of Most Flavors

Dannon Light& Fit Yogurt: 2oz Most Flavors

 

Oscar Mayer Oven Roasted Turkey Breast: 4 Oz

2 Egg Omelette with Veggies and 1/8 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Grilled Shrimp with 1 Tsp Olive Oil

Fat Free Cool Whip: 2 TBSP (great with fruit)

 

PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter: 2 Tablespoons Powder

Applegate Uncured Turkey Pepperoni: 1 Oz

Fat Free Flour Tortilla: 1 6” Tortilla

Puffed Rice Cereal: 1/2 Cup

 

Almonds: 7 Almonds

Almond Milk, Plain, Unsweetened: 8 Oz Glass

Are these the recommended serving sizes or different for the Weight Watchers program? 

The serving sizes show in this list are equal to 1 Freestyle Smart Point. I have found that sometimes the recommended serving size is more than 1 point but also more than I really need in a serving. 

Weight Watchers has taught me many things and portion control is one of the big ones! Just because the packaging gives a recommended serving size that doesn’t mean that it’s a healthy portion size. If you adjust the portion sizes or eat based on the packaging make sure to recalculate to see how many points need to track. 

How did you come up with these serving sizes and points? 

Good question! I use the Weight Watchers online calculator and app! They both have a very useful search function that allows me to search for the foods I want to eat and then adjust the portion until I see that it’s 1 point (or my desired points). 

Sometimes different brands of products have different points. If you are worried about calculating your points I would suggest you make use of the WW app and the online program. It’s a wonderful way to keep on track and focused on your goals. 

Plus, now when you use the app or the online program to track your meals, weight, and activity you get points that you can redeem for products and gift cards! You can learn more about the Wellness Wins program in my post all about it! 

Can I eat just from the zero points food list? 

Now that Freestyle offers so many different zero point foods it can seem like you aren’t eating a lot of points in a day. I’d recommend adding in some healthy fats. Some avocado to your salads, olive oil when cooking your proteins, etc. 

You can certainly try to eat from the zero or 1 point foods lists but it won’t work in the long run. You need to be eating in the healthy point range established when you fill out the first part of your WW evaluation. 

Staying in the healthy range each day will help optimize your plan. You need to use some common sense when planning your meals and eating your foods each day.

A healthy balance of each food group will help you achieve the best results. That is how Weight Watchers structures their points and in turn it will help you learn to balance your intake of certain food groups.

Carbs, fats, and unhealthy options are going to have higher point values so those will naturally be limited in your diet or you will run out of points! 

What else can I have on my Weight Watchers plan? 

Along with these Weight Watchers 1 point snacks, you can also create tons of fun recipes with low fat items to stay within your point range each day. This list offers you some great easy to make or ready made options you can pack for snacks and lunch throughout your day at work, school or simply at home with your family.

Staying on track with your Weight Watchers diet is easy when you are prepared. Planning ahead, especially before you go grocery shopping, will help you stay focused and on track.

I have found over the years that if I have good snacks on hand, front and center in the fridge and the cupboards, I will make better choices!

I have been part of the Weight Watchers world on and off for many years. I like that it offers me flexibility without the stress of cutting out entire food groups. 

Here is a handy post with a list of to help keep you on track  WW Zero Point Foods to help keep you on track.

As I’ve worked my way through the program and the many updates these are the resources that I have found most useful. Plenty of amazing recipes to try, printable shopping lists, and even fast food choices with points included!

    This isn’t accurate. I just re-joined WW, and the points system has definitely changed! There are no tortillas or cereal for 1 point…among other inaccuracies!

    I will say, I’m loving the new program!

      Thanks for the input. These snack ideas are from the original old school WW program. The new PPV program is definitely different.

          I agree. The old WW point system is easy for me. I “graze” all day long & am never hungry! Love the bonus points each week… I even allow myself Dairy Queen now and then & am still losing weight. Started at 165 in April, and am now at 139 in July!

    I like my dessert, and every evening I have sugar free Jello and Cool Whip Light. Fruit smoothies are also big on my list, especially for breakfast. A little ice, a tablespoon of fat free yogurt and some blueberries, strawberries or pineapple. Yum.

    thanks for the list. I too follow the old weight watchers points program. The PPV does not work for me. For some reason I stay really hungry even though I can eat as any fruits and veggies as I want.

      That is right! You can function on zero point foods alone. But their great for snacks.

    I am having trouble staying away from carbs. Does WW have a different plan for a low carb diet?

      Truthfully, most of the Smartpoints options are low carb and they emphasize protein. Thanks for stopping by.

    I am having a hard time eating my 30 points each day. At night I find myself looking for snacks to come close to my points. I usually eat between 24 to 28 points each day. Will this slow my weight loss down?

      Hi Sherry, thanks for stopping by. Yes your weight loss may be affected if you aren’t eating all of your points. When this happened to me, I bumped up my protein and it helped. Hard boiled eggs, string cheese, imitation crab legs, beef jerky, tuna are all things I snack on. Even though they are low in points they help me get all of my points each day. I hope that helps! Best, Michele
