Healthy snack options

Snacks form an important part of your diet and require just as much attention as the rest of your nutrition. It is very easy for all your hard work to be undone if you graze on rubbish between breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Protein (20-30 g) should form the basis of your snacks with the addition of some low glycaemic index carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. At least one snack a day should contain a variety of fruit and vegetables.

Avoid too many dried fruits and cereal bars where possible. Dried fruit is high in sugar and there is more benefit to eating raw fruit, with the exception of dried apricots. Cereal bars are low in protein and do not contain the vitamins and minerals found in fruit and vegetables.
