The best new healthy snacks

In need of a healthy snack but can't face any more celery sticks or apples? Lucky for you there are all sorts of new alternatives available. Here are some of our favourites.

We know you shouldn't judge a snack by its cover (or something to that effect) but when its packaging is this pretty it's hard not to! Those with a sweet tooth will love the Squirrel Sisters range of cakey snacks. They're not cheap at £2.49 each, but they will keep you nice and full and quash those cravings. Find out more at or pick one up at your local Wholefoods.

KIND Snacks new Madagascan Vanilla Almond Bar (£1.29) has just launched in Waitrose, and is the brand's lowest sugar bar with just 4g of sugar compared with 6.5g of protein - great for keeping you fuller, longer.

Yogurt fans will love the new Bio Live range from Yeo Valley (£2 for four 120g pots). They contain no refined sugars or anything artificial - which makes them a little more tart than you might be used to. However, we really enjoyed them with fresh fruit and low sugar granola. Find them in Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Asda and other selected supermarkets.


Crisp addict? You'll enjoy the new lower calorie offerings from Kettle Chips - Kettle Bites, which have fewer than 100 calories in each bag. The range (70p for a 22g bag or £1.89 for a multipack of five) includes Lentil Curls in Sweet Chilli or Mozzarella and Pesto, or Wholegrain Waves in Maple Barbecue or Coconut, Lime and Chilli. Find them in your local supermarket.

Peanut butter fans will love these new nut bars from Meridian (£1.19 each). Made with palm oil free peanut butter and other natural ingredients, they're a good source of protein. We tried the Peanut and Cocoa variety which were wonderfully filling and not too sweet. Available from Holland and Barrett.


In need of a 3pm chocolate fix? You can't go wrong with a Kallo Milk Chocolate Corn Cake (£1.69 for six). At just 78 calories per crunchy cake you'll get a filling sweet snack without the guilt. Plus they are suitable for coeliacs too. Available from Waitrose or Ocado.


Missed breakfast? Keep going until lunch with a quick fix from Lizi's Granola. These Gogo Granola pouches (between 45-49p each) are great for - you guessed it - snacking on the go.  Available in several flavours including Treacle and Peacan and Belgian Chocolate, they have no more than 100 calories each and are high in fibre. Available at most supermarkets and health food shops.
