    Default Healthy snacks during pregnancy - ideas please:)

    I'm having difficulty coming up with a variety of healthy snacks I can take to work with me......I work in a call centre (so highly scheduled) and with only two 10 minute breaks outside of my lunch (which go down if you visit the bathroom) am finding it very hard, and usually wind up starving at some point (mostly in the afternoon after I've eaten everything I've brought with me!) during the day.

    What are your favourite snacks? Any and all ideas welcome

    I used to take tuna sandwiches, cut up apples & peaches, cheese & crackers, and Carmen's nut bars - they are all natural ingredients & very yummy!

    Thanks everybody! Keep 'em coming

    Currently I take: (not all at once😉)

    Cut up carrots
    Dried fruit and nuts (premixed)
    Yogurt
    Fruit
    Muesli bars
    Cereal bars
    (I think the bars can be high in sugar though)
    Cheerios (the cereal not the sausages)
    Dark chocolate (like 70%)

    Think I need to invest in some more Tupperware too (will be good for snacks now and baby meals later)

    http://therenegadekitchen.com/raw-ch...e-bliss-balls/ - any kind of raw bliss ball like this is my favourite kind of snack. They're quite filling too. so you don't need many.

    If you're looking for reusable containers and whatnot, there are some pretty rad options available through Biome and other hippy-type shops. I have a couple of different ones that are good for bento/salads/nibbles.

    Maybe add some protein to your snack list. Boiled eggs or tuna or some meat might help get you through.

    Thanks everyone

    Sounds like I've got the same ideas, it's just quantity I need to increase
