- Boiled eggs – are a great on the go, travel snack. One egg contains about 6-7 grams of high-quality protein. Eggs are rich in vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. Just boil 2 eggs per person the night before a trip, peel and enjoy.
- Chopped up vegetable sticks – such as carrots, cucumber, capsicum and celery are wonderful snacks when paired with a source of protein such as hummus or peanut butter.

- Greek yoghurt with your choice of fruit and a sprinkle of hemp seeds.
What are the best natural snacks for kids?
Most of the kids’ snacks are quite processed these days. It’s important to read package labels and choose snacks for children that are low in sugar, additives and preservatives and high in healthy fats, fibre and protein. These important macronutrients are going to help with brain development, concentration and keep kids blood sugar levels stable. This will hopefully reduce the risk of meltdowns, fatigue and sugar cravings.
The above list of snacks are all okay for kids to enjoy. However if giving them something with little to no protein or healthy fats, it is best to add a handful of nuts, a few slices of cheese or some Greek yoghurt to keep those blood sugar levels stable.
