Back To School Snacks!

Posted on: Sep 11, 2018

It’s September, which means it’s back to school season for many kids out there! If you have some youngsters going off to school every day now or are a college or university student yourself and want some quick back to school snack ideas to take for a long day of studying and work- check out our suggested 4 snacks below!

  1. Fruit and Veg: We all need to reach our 5-a-day and getting a portion or two into your lunchbox for a mid-day snack is such an easy way to reach that goal! With so many options to choose from you can either have a full piece of fruit such as a banana or an orange, or a cute little box with mixed berries, tomatoes or carrots! 
  2. Popcorn: Make sure there isn’t too much salt or added sugar to it, but popcorn can often be a great snack! Especially when it comes in pre-packed, single portion bags, it can help you with any savoury craving you may have around 3 o’clock!
  3. A high-fibre and protein snack bar: Just like with our 5-a-day of fruit and veg, we all want to get enough dietary fibre and protein throughout the day. Both will fuel you and keep you going for a lot longer than a high sugar snack as Protein and Fibre are rather slowly digested. Looking for a snack that has both? Try out our range of High Protein Bars: Apple Pie, Cacao Orange and Salted Caramel! With >8g of protein and 4.6 to 5.6 grams of fibre per bar it’s the perfect little snack to take on the go!
  4. Overnight oats: This one takes a bit more effort as there is a bit of prep involved, but overnight oats are super easy to make! Take a tupperware box the night before, add some oats and a milk alternative plus top with berries and your choice of superfood toppings and stick in the fridge! The next morning- pop it into your lunch box and have as a morning snack! Quick-releasing energy from the berries and the slow-releasing energy from the oats is the combo of your dreams!
