1. One fresh pear and one slice of Kraft Singles cheese (97% fat free)
A low-GI, low-fat snack with protein and calcium.
2. Ceres Organics Trail Mix — Original
A small handful of these nuts, seeds and dried fruit is a great snack. While low in saturated fat this is higher in total fat so keep it at a handful.
3. Turkish Kitchen Greek Yoghurt & Cucumber Dip with celery and carrot sticks
While this is a low-kilojoule, low-carbohydrate, low-fat and low-sodium snack, it’s not low on taste! Quick and easy to serve on a platter.
4. Vogel’s bread with Country Goodness Lite Cottage Cheese and a slice of avocado
This satisfying snack includes whole grains, low-fat protein plus avocado with healthy fat.
5. Huntley & Palmers Wholegrain Crackers with Perfect Italiano Extra-Light Ricotta cheese & tomato slices
Wholegrain crackers with low- fat ricotta are slowly digested— better for blood glucose control. The tomato adds bite.
6. Turkish Kitchen Kumara & Lentil Dip with 180 degrees Lavosh Crispy Snacks — Black & White Sesame Seed
A healthier version of the old crisps and dip. It’s low fat and low in sodium as well.
7. Yoplait Raspberry Strawberry (125g) with 1/2 cup blueberries
Fresh fruit with low-fat yoghurt provides protein and calcium. And it’s sweet enough for those with a sweet tooth.
8. Slice of Rosedale Cinnamon Fruit Loaf with a little reduced-fat spread
A great under 400kJ snack when you just need a little something to fill that gap.
9. Healtheries Simple — Apricot & Yoghurt Snack Bar
This is a substantial snack bar (738kJ) and a good source of protein, calcium and fibre. And with a low-GI it may be just the snack you need before exercise.
10. A trim latté
This is a great mid-morning snack — easy to have on the run. A good source of protein and calcium. Some studies have shown that coffee may even be beneficial for those with diabetes (in moderation of course!).
