1. Use veggie sticks in your homemade healthy snack boxes
Veggie sticks and dip are always a great staple for your homemade healthy snack boxes. We love this guide to veggie sticks and dips which gives you loads of ideas for the best veggies to prep in your healthy snack boxes and also the best dips to go with them.
2. Pack muffins in your healthy snack boxes
3. Create a mix of protein and fibre
We often think of getting the mix of sweet and savoury but another tip is to use a balance of protein and fibre in your homemade snack boxes; to help them keep you fuller for longer.
Good protein sources for homemade healthy snack boxes include boiled eggs, avocado and cooked meats (all easy to store cold and eat quickly).
Things like sliced apple, carrots, cucumber and chickpea-based hummus and a fibre boost too.
Ideal if you are in a hurry and left without lunch or dinner-at least you’ll know your snack box will cover your nutritional needs.
4. Dried nuts and fruit make a great healthy snackbox staple
We’ve thought about vegetables but don’t neglect fruit too. Fresh fruit works well but so does dried fruit; which can work out cheaper if you buy in bulk. Add some nuts to your healthy snack boxes too-almonds and cashews work great for this and are a great source of healthy fats and vegan protein.
5. Batch make sweet treats
As well as using fresh produce, batch-making healthy snacks for your homemade healthy snack boxes are another great idea. Opt for snacks that you can make in bulk but also won’t melt, need refrigerating, and don’t need cutlery to eat. We love to batch bake our superfood chocolate brownie bites (pictured above).
