Infant nutritionist / Makes Ella's Good
Little kids are full of energy, so it’s no surprise that if you’re out shopping in the supermarket, queuing at the post office or on a fun day out there will inevitably be some rumbly tummies by mid-morning or afternoon! It’s all too easy to grab crisps or sweets from a nearby shop but if you keep a couple of handy, healthy options in your bag to pre-empt those hunger pangs, you won’t need to resort to less healthy options.
Our nutritionist Claire has put together these easy, on-the-go snacks:
A DIY trail mix is great for on the go + you can get your toddler to help with picking their favourite ingredients + mix, mix, mixing them together!
Why not try some of nutritionist Claire’s suggestions below, just mix + match from the options and store in a large container to decant into a smaller pot for when you’re ready to get out + about!
• No added or low sugar breakfast cereals e.g. hoops, puffs and flakes
• Dried fruit
• Small melty crackers (low or no added salt)
• Broken up oatcakes
• Cubes of malt loaf
• No added or low salt mini pretzels
Make sure that whatever you choose has a safe, melt in the mouth texture that isn’t crumbly, brittle or flaky.
