Apple & Peanut butter: 164 kcal (with 1 tbsp peanut butter) 

This a snack that always leaves me feeling full, whilst also ticking off a portion of fruit and consuming healthy fats. Try slicing the apple before work, and placing into a container with your peanut butter.

30g serving Propercorn: 129 kcal

Who doesn’t love popcorn? It’s such a treat, but can quite easily be eaten as a delicious snack. Bonus being it’s easy to eat in a work space, and super easy to pop into a paper back if you’ve limited space in your bag.

Carrot & Courgette sticks: 60 kcal

This might not be for everyone, but I absolute love raw vegetables! They’re the perfect low calorie, but nutrient dense snack. You’re also working towards your five a day, and once again they’re a non- messy option that can easily be transported. If you’re new to eating raw vegetables, try pairing it with 2 tbsp hummus for extra flavour.

Nairn’s fine milled oat cakes: 108 kcal (for three)

Forget oat cakes just being for cheese, these are a great snack and so delicious! They’re pretty filling for little oat cakes, so you might not feel the need for three. But if you do want to tuck into all three (I don’t blame you), then they’re only 108 kcal. You’re on to a winner with these, if you’re asking me!

Blueberries: 90 kcal (200g punnet) 

You can’t go wrong with a bowl of blueberries, they’re so sweet and tasty. If you’re one for a sugary tooth, opt for fruits like blueberries as they’ll keep your more satisfied than my above suggestion of carrots. Once again they’ll help you to  bump up your fruit and vegetable consumption, they also contain high levels of antioxidants which will improve your overall feeling of health.
