Healthy Snacks: 7 Ready-Made Options to Try

Healthier snacks

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

Nakd bars are one of the first healthy snacks I found. My favourites would have to be Berry DelightCashew 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.

Aldi Bars

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

Similarly to Nakd, Wild Trail make raw fruit and nut bars that are free of refined sugar. I really like their Fruit and Nut Apple bars. They also sell Seed and Nut and Cacao bars too.

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.

Bear Yoyos

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.

      Oooh yes I used to love the mango at Aldi! It’s so frustrating when they stop selling things or don’t stock them all the time isn’t it 🙁 I like the Urban Fruit mango too x

    I LOVE this post Jenny! I’m a massive fan of Nakd bars – Bakewell Tart is my favourite. I must admit, I haven’t come across Yushoi before – they really sound like my cup of tea though so I’m going to look out for them on my next supermarket shop! Where did you buy them from if you don’t mind me asking? xx

      Thanks so much Maggie! I love the Bakewell Tart ones, they’re so tasty aren’t they! I often get Yushoi from Tesco – they quite often have them on offer. I’ve seen them in Aldi before too and they sell them on Amazon, which I’ve linked to in my post. I would imagine they sell them in the other supermarkets now too xx

    I always grab one of these when I am very hungry so even though I am the most tempted to grab a pizza, I’ve learned that these are much better. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m always trying to have healthy snacks because I snack A LOT! haha I really like nakd bars as they are quite filling and they have loads of flavours, KIND bars are also pretty great but quite expensive in my opinion! x

    I’m obsessed with the Yushoi pea snacks. They’re not healthy for me as I have to eat the whole bag when I open it, haha.

    So many products I haven’t heard of before but I can’t wait to try some of them out! I absolutely love Nakd bars and I’m a sucker for the vegan salted caramel bites that they’ve bought out recently – Wild Trail sound fantastic, as do the Kallo corn cakes! Definitely adding these to my next shopping list!
