As we get closer to the end of the semester, this is the time when I get a serious urge to snack at night. When I snack, it could be possibly anything from hot Cheetos to a banana with peanut butter. Yum!. However, these snacks aren't the healthiest options, so I am going to list a few snacks that can fulfill your cravings and give you more energy!

4. Yogurt

5. Almond milk

Now, here are some snacks you should surely avoid!

1. Pizza

2. Sugary cereal
