As a dietitian naturally I am pretty mindful of what I am eating and how often. While I do not generally snack throughout the morning, most afternoons about 3-4pm I find myself pretty hungry, especially if I am out and about with the twins. And since they are ALWAYS eating, it can be easily to get into the bad habit of mindless munching. For this reason I always pack myself a nutritionally balanced snack, and these are my favourite.
Who does not love cheese and crackers and with mini snack packs available in supermarkets you can find the perfect portion of cheese and crackers to go. Generally I like Vita Weats as my cracker of choice and team 4-6 of them with a couple of slices of cheese. It doesn’t really matter which cheese you choose, by Jarlsberg Light is a good option.
Goats cheese and tomato
When I am at home snacking, my go to is always Rye Cruskits (the twins love them too) with Meredith Valley Goats cheese and tomato or cucumber. I love this so much and did you know that goats cheese is lower in fat than most yellow cheeses?
There are a lot of different Bounce Balls but this one is my absolute fav. I always have one handy in my handbag and have to eat them secretly or I will have to share it with the twins. With almost 9g of protein and 7g of fibre per ball, this is the perfect filling snack on the run.
Corn Thins and Mayver’s Nut Spread
I also love corn thins and when they are topped by Mayvers 100% Nut Spreads (which I love) they are so, so yummy you feel as if you are having a real treat.
This homemade dip that comes from Shape Me, my online program, and is absolutely delicious and teams perfectly with chopped veges.
