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)
- 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).
- Coconut flakes are a great idea-have them raw or toast them in the oven.
- 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.
- Cold snags/lamb chops are a great snack or roast up a tray of chicken wings/drumsticks and have them cold.
- Homemade salmon fish-cakes or beef rissoles are also a great snack that will last in the fridge for a few days.
- 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.
- Chunks of cheddar cheese are also a big hit and will keep the kids full for longer.
