I measure out (calories counted) a little bag of mixed nuts in the morning and keep it in my pocket. (walnuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds, you can add a couple raisins or dried cranberries if you like but not many) I'm on a high fat low carb diet counting calories with myfitnesspal and lost like 4kg already.

I also pack a container of chopped veggies sprinkled with a little seasoned salt, and a can of salmon almost everyday for lunch.  You can eat buckets of veggies & barely get any calories but eat any "normal" serving of carbs & that's like a third of your days calories... so go sparingly.

If you're in transition phase from heavy snacking, fruit is a good substitute. I've had periods where I needed to stop going to buy convenience store cookies so I would get like a whole mixed fruit medley and tell myself I could eat as much fruit as I wanted just no cookies. Worked well. It's easier (for me at least) to transition to less sugar from a diet of fruit than of cookies.

Other healthy snacks :

A small serving of unsweetened yogurt with blueberries added (blueberries are a low sugar fruit)

A protein shake.

Cottage cheese. (small servings)

Popcorn

Nowadays my snacking is weirder & weirder, like a spoonful of coconut oil or flax oil, or a raw vegan protein powder mixed with water & unsweetened.... not sure if that is a 'tip' for anyone getting started though.

If you stick to eating mostly whole foods & not prepared processed foods like boxed meals, noodles, bread, almost anything 'packaged'... Just stick mostly to real foods in their basic form, Vegs, fruits, nuts, meats, water, healthy fats, it's a really safe &  simple  "meal plan". I eat a lot of salads (generous drizzle of olive oil & sprinkle of seasoned salt) or just chopped veggies.
