If, like me, you eat small meals with a sensible, healthy snack in between, you’ll be on the lookout for something small, tasty, and healthy that won’t leave you too full. My ideal snack is portable, shelf-stable, or at least not needing refrigeration for a day or two (like apples and mandarins), and not high in added sugar or sodium (salt). Take a look at my recommendations.

Here are five criteria I use when looking for a healthy snack:
While many of us are working from home or are in lockdown due to the COVID crisis it’s very easy to use food as a crutch, to fill in time, or to tide you over till you can get time for a proper meal. That’s why healthy snacking can play a part in this new lifestyle we all find ourselves in at the moment. I’ve divided the snacks into two main categories – fresh and shelf-stable. Take a look.
Since the beginning of the lockdown we’ve seen more and more things being delivered and now with the GoodnessMe Box you can have healthy snacks delivered to your door every month.
The boxes are curated by GoodnessMe’s “team of picky health practitioners” who “seek products that are all natural, GMO-Free and clear of nasties like artificial sweeteners, preservatives, colours, food additives, synthetic trans fats, MSG and HCFS.”
The boxes are available for those with no specific dietary requirements as well as those who need gluten-free, or vegan, or dairy-free, or gluten-free AND dairy-free products only.
Snacks aren’t bad for you in and of themselves. You just have to pick the healthy ones that add goodness to your nutrition and are tasty and satisfying.
