Fresh fruits and vegetables are good sodium-free snack options. Apples, bananas and grapes are good portable snacks, as are carrot sticks, celery sticks and broccoli. Frozen fruits and vegetables are sodium-free if they are unsweetened and have no sauce. Canned fruits and vegetables have salt-free options as well. Popcorn is a satisfying snack that is low in sodium, and adding lemon pepper, Parmesan cheese or salt-free butter powder can enhance its flavor.

Yogurt, cheese and skim milk are low in sodium and contain other nutrients that support good health. Soy milk is an option if dairy isn't feasible. Hard-boiled eggs have high protein but no added sodium, and their portability makes them ideal for snacking. Scrambled eggs with butter and pepper is a good low-sodium snack. Grocery stores typically offer pre-packaged snacks, such as crackers, chips and pretzels, that feature low-sodium labels. Sweet potato chips, tortilla chips and Ritz crackers are available in reduced sodium varieties. Graham crackers, saltines and Melba toast are other convenient snack options that are low in sodium.
