Don't feel guilty if you get a craving for a late-night snack. We all do. Just don't give in to the temptation of junk food snacks. Here is a selection of delicious healthy late-night snacks to choose from when you hear your stomach rumbling.

1. Whole-Grain Crackers

Whole-grain crackers make a very healthy late-night snack, as they contain protein and can go a long way in helping you feel full. You can have them with hummus, low-fat cheese or a slice of lean meat.

2. Cereal with Low-Fat Milk

Cereal contains fiber, which will keep you full until morning, while low-fat milk will provide you with calcium, vitamin D and protein. For a truly healthy late-night snack, choose cereal that is high in protein and low in sugar, like raisin bran.

3. Whole-Wheat Sandwich

A whole-wheat sandwich with turkey filling also makes a great choice for a late-night snack. Turkey is a lean meat, which can give you a feeling of fullness without making your calory intake soar. To make it more savory, you can add some lettuce, tomatoes or a slice of low-fat cheese.

4. Greek Yogurt with Fruit

Low in carbs and rich in protein, Greek yogurt is a very healthy late-night snack option. Spice it up with fresh fruit, which is a great source of vitamins and antioxidants

5. Cheese Quesadilla

Sprinkle some grated low-fat cheese (high in protein) between two high-fiber tortillas, then crisp both sides on an indoor grill, and you've got yourself a healthy midnight snack.

6. Banana on Toast

The perfect healthy late-night snack option, a banana-on-toast combo contains complex carbohydrates which encourage the release of melatonin, helping you relax and have a good night sleep.

7. Low-Fat Cottage Cheese with Fruit

Low-fat cottage cheese is yet another low-carb, protein-rich food which, combined with some slices of fresh fruit, makes a very healthy late-night snack.

8. Blueberry Smoothie

A fruit smoothie is a delicious healthy late-night snack option. Use low-fat milk or yogurt as your base and add a liquid yogurt like kefir, to aid digestion.

9. Fruit

Fresh fruit is always a healthy snack, rich in vitamins and antioxidants. You can treat yourself to a tasty and nutritious berry bowl or a bowl of pineapple.

10. Popcorn

Popcorn may not be the healthiest snack when soaked in butter and salt. However, with the right seasoning (try cayenne pepper), it is an easily digestible, low-cal snack that will quench your late-night cravings.
