    Default Food Shopping - Snacks for the family

    So a pretty boring thread but just after some ideas! Every week during my food shop I tend to be walking around in circles and basically coming out with nothing as I am in a snack rut and am unsure what to buy for the whole family as snacks (apart from fruit). So, what snacks do you buy in the food shopping each week for your family?

    Snacks I buy are

    Cheese crackers and dip (sometimes I make the dip) or antipasto type things (huge hit in our house)

    Not healthy but Doritos and salsa (more of an occasionally treat)

    Nut mix, almonds, cashews and walnuts

    Yoghurt
