Top 10 Healthy Crackers for Snacking in 2023

Indulging in midday snack breaks is a universal office ritual, and at Prevention, we take our snacking seriously—just take a look at the crumbs on our keyboards! When it came time to discern the best healthy crackers, our team enthusiastically volunteered for the taste test.

So, what makes a cracker 'healthy'? Forget the front of the box with its confusing marketing claims; turn to the side panel for the real deal. Stefani Sassos, M.S., R.D.N., from the Good Housekeeping Institute, advises focusing on the ingredients label. Opt for crackers with minimal ingredients, avoiding refined grains.

Look for bases made from whole grains, nut flours, or vegetables, and consider adding seeds and nuts for extra crunch. Nutrition-wise, aim for high fiber (3 grams or more per serving), low sodium (140 milligrams or less per serving), and minimal added sugar.

Protein is also crucial, according to Lauren Slayton, M.S., R.D., founder of FoodTrainers in NYC. Combining protein and fiber keeps you feeling full, so steer clear of crackers with refined oils like canola, soybean, and corn oil.

Luckily, we've sifted through countless boxes to present you with the tastiest and healthiest options. Our taste test considered both texture and flavor, and the results are in—these crackers are winners!
