Think of snacks that will sustain the kids longer rather than give them big spikes (and then big falls) in their blood sugar. (avoid the biscuits and chips)

  1. Whip up some fried/scrambled eggs, or keep a bowl of hard-boiled eggs in the fridge handy (just halve them with a knife, add salt and serve).
  2. Coconut flakes are a great idea-have them raw or toast them in the oven.
  3. Home-made guacamole or hummus with some carrot sticks is perfect as is plain, full-fat yoghurt with a drizzle of honey, cinnamon and nutmeg is yum.
  4. Cold snags/lamb chops are a great snack or roast up a tray of chicken wings/drumsticks and have them cold.
  5. Homemade salmon fish-cakes or beef rissoles are also a great snack that will last in the fridge for a few days.
  6. All types of raw nuts and seeds are great (just watch allergies/choking). Nut pastes such as peanut/almond/tahini are so filling and nutritious.
  7. Chunks of cheddar cheese are also a big hit and will keep the kids full for longer.
