Healthy Snacks for your healthier diet

Healthy Snacks that are nutritious and easy to eat on the move – for both kids and adults

We all know that eating healthy is important, but sometimes it’s hard to make healthy snack choices. The good news is that there are plenty of healthy snacks out there that taste great and provide essential nutrients. Here are some tips for healthy snacks at home and on the go.

At home, try to keep healthy snacks within reach and easily accessible. This way, you’re more likely to reach for healthy snacks when you’re feeling hungry. Some good options include fruit, nuts, seeds, whole grain crackers, and low-fat yoghurt.

If you’re travelling, pack healthy snacks with you so you don’t have to rely on unhealthy vending machines or supermarkets. There is always a way choosing healthier snacks over a chocolate bar. Look at the food labels.

The front of the packet often tells you about the good stuff inside – like how many healthy whole grains there are.

On-the-go snack ideas:

– a piece of fruit such as an apple or banana

– a handful of nuts or seeds

– a healthy whole grain cracker

– low-fat yoghurt

– our Oh Lily! snacks

Healthy snacks for adults

For adults, some great healthier alternatives include:

– Fresh fruit or vegetables with dips like hummus or yoghurt

– Whole grain crackers or bread with cheese or peanut butter

– Nuts or seeds

– Greek yoghurt

– Cottage cheese

– Cherry cherry tomatoes

– protein bars

Fresh fruit and vegetable sticks with healthy dips like hummus or yoghurt are a great healthy snack option for both kids and adults. These healthy snacks provide essential parts that the body needs to function properly, help to keep blood sugar levels stable, can help to reduce cravings for unhealthy foods, and are a good source of fibre.

Whole grain crackers or bread with cheese are other options that are perfect for adults. These healthy snacks are high in fibre and protein, which can help to keep you feeling fuller for longer.

Peanut butter

is a worldwide favourite spread. It tastes wonderful and has a fantastic texture, especially when it adheres to the roof of your mouth before melting. Not everyone can eat peanuts, however. Some people are allergic to them, and even for a small proportion of the population, they may be deadly.

Peanut butter is a minimally processed food. They’re mostly peanuts that have been roasted and ground into a paste. However, this isn’t always the case with many commercial peanut butters. These can include various additives, including refined sugar, vegetable oils and trans fat.

Rather than buying processed foods with several added ingredients, choose peanut butter with only peanuts and maybe a bit of salt as its ingredients.

Peanuts are a wonderful source of plant based protein, with about 25% protein. However, it is low in the essential amino acid methionine.

Healthy snacks for kids

For kids, healthy snacks options include:

– Fruit and vegetable sticks with a dip like sticks from red pepper or carrot

– a sliced banana

– Cottage cheese

– Whole grain cracker or bread with peanut butter or cream cheese

– Rice cake with peanut butter or cheese

– Plain yoghurt with fruit

– Hummus made from chickpeas

– Smoothies

Fruit and vegetable are snack ideas are always easy ideas, but if your children are eating prepackaged foods look how nutritious it is.

Making healthy snacks at home can be quick, easy and delicious – give it a try!

Why healthy snacking is important

Healthier snacking is important for a number of reasons. First, healthy snacks provide essential nutrients that the body needs to function properly. Second, healthy snacks help to keep blood sugar levels stable, which can prevent energy crashes and cravings later on. Third, healthy snacks can help to boost metabolism and burn more calories throughout the day. Finally, healthy snacks can help to reduce the risk of developing obesity and other chronic health conditions.
