best lunchtime snacks?

At the moment I take two rolls and 5 pieces of fruit to work every day for lunch.
While this is good, i tend to snack on it intermittently throughout the day and often find myself buying something else to nibble on during my lunch hour.

Recent fads include cashew nuts, pistachio's, any other nuts, dried fruit & nut mix and dried banana's, but all of those are high-ish in calories. given that I’m already having my 5portions of fruit a day, what else would be a suitable snack to purchase in town when on lunch?

Want to eat as healthily as possible and looking to maintain current weight rather than cut/bulk, so what would be a good option? I’m guessing a 100g bag of cashews each day is not a good idea?

    Make yourself meals in advance:

    Chicken/turkey/tuna sandwich on wholemeal bread (with fruit)
    Wholemeal pasta/brown rice with turkey/chicken/tuna/fish veg and some flavouring in a tub
    Fruit smoothie with whey powder and oats
    Home made bar with oats, protien and dried fruit and nuts

    All can be balanced meals, easily made and eaten on the move

    If you have a toaster at work

    Cold tuna on wholemeal toast wit fruit or veg (cold)

    More ideas peanut butter sandwich etc etc
