Ever checked the ingredients listed on foods you thought were healthy and been shocked with what you see? Sugar is hidden in so many foods today, particularly of the ‘low fat’ variety, so finding truly healthy snacks can be a challenge.
7 Ready-made Healthy Snacks to Try
Nakd bars are one of the first healthy snacks I found. My favourites would have to be Berry Delight, Cashew Cookie and Bakewell Tart. They have so many other flavours, as well as different types of nibbles, like these Salted Caramel packs, which sound yummy.
Recently, I’ve found that Aldi are selling more and more healthier snacks and they’re often good value compared to the bigger brands. They have their own version of Nakd bars and I really like the cashew ones. When I’m out for the day, I often take one of their Raw Fruit Bars with me, which contain dried fruit and nothing else. My favourite flavours are Apple and Banana, and Apple and Pear, both of which are really tasty.
Wild Trail Bars
Yushoi Pea Snacks
Yushoi pea snacks are a great alternative to crisps. The main ingredient is green peas and the lightly salted ones have zero added sugar. As well as coming in small bags, which are handy for carrying around in your handbag, they are also available in bigger sharing bags.
Kallo Rice/Corn Cakes
Kallo make a variety of healthy snacks and foods, such as rice cakes and Lightly Salted Corn Cakes – made from 99% corn and sea salt, they’re another fab alternative to crisps. They’re pretty moreish and you can put toppings on them too, although they’re lovely plain.
Marks and Spencer Giant Corn
Marks and Spencer have a selection of healthy snacks, such as Lightly Salted Giant Corn – the only ingredients are corn, sunflower oil and salt. Another great savoury option.
Now these may be marketed for children, but they’re just as good for adults! They’re really handy to carry around in a handbag because they’re so small. and because they’re sweet, they satisfy sweet cravings. Made just of fruit and with no added sugar, they’re a healthy alternative to dessert! Raspberry yoyos are my favourite flavour, and I also love the strawberry and blackcurrant ones.
