I also am a full-time college student AND work at a daycare center. Snacks are always hard to avoid when serving the kiddos but every time I feel myself slipping, I stop and ask myself "is it worth it"? Thinking about the extra calories always stops me from mindless munching. Since I also watch my spending, my go-to snacks are baby carrots with string cheese, apples and peanut butter, a bag of low-calorie kettle corn, or trail mix. Hitting up the bulk section always saves money for me!
