suggest you use the dictionary section of TAGALOG.COM, you'll find the tagalog word for snack there. I find this dictionary to be the most useful dictionary I have come across for Tagalog.

Meryenda = a general snack
Baon = snacks or provisions for going on a trip
Pulutan = drinking or party snacks

Sabi ko snnaaaaawwwlk. Char.
 
Meryenda brought by the Spanish as originally late afternoon experience. Filipinos tend to use as mid-morning refueling often with kape break.
 
Baon is food to go...usually portioned to a small snack and individually wrapped with love to fuel you in a weak spot when you are out and about.
 
Chicharon..fried pork rinds...or so many other flavorings of cracklings...and sometimes extended to any packaged fried snacks.

Aside from those already mentioned, you could use "chichiria" - it is usually applied to potato chips, nuts, and other similar light snacks that we refer to as junk food.
Another possibility is "pika-pika" -- usually applied to finger foods at cocktail parties. Cf. h'ors de ouvres.

Meryenda is the one commonly used in tagalog.
 
Baon is provisions, not necessarily snacks (it could be your lunch brought to work, food for the trip, or even money).
 
Pulutan is typically a type of food paired with drinks or beverages (often liquor or beer).
 
Meryenda is the word you're looking for.
