Guide to Smart Snacking

If you have a busy life, it's really tempting to get into the snacking habit. Grabbing a bag of crisps or a chocolate bar on the way home may give you a short-term energy boost, but these snacks are usually the ones that are filled with bad types of fat and sugar. It's best to try and stop snacking in between meals altogether, but if you are finding it hard, try to carry a couple of pieces of dried fruit or a bag of nuts around with you. These can give you the same energy boost, are a source of vitamins and minerals (count towards your 5-A-DAY) and contain fats and sugars that are better for you.

Healthy snacking is vital for kids. Dried fruit and nuts provide your child with a range of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients essential for their growth and development and are ideal lunchbox choices, as they are ready to eat and great for little fingers!
