5 Mess-Free Healthy On The Go Snacks Snacks


I'm a huge snacker - whether it be on the go or with a cup of tea mid afternoon. Sometimes, I find myself snacking my way through the day (I'm a poet) and it will get to tea time and I won't want a proper meal, oops. 

But, it is so easy to grab a chocolate bar, a packet of crisps or some other unhealthy snack, that although may be delicious now, it won't keep you full for longer and the cycle will be repeated. However, recently, I've seen a huge increase in the range of healthy snacks that are available in supermarkets etc.

So, as it is the month of 'back to school', I thought I'd compile a list of some of my favourite go-to snacks. Also, they are mess free which is always a bonus especially if you are taking them on the go. Who's got time to open that tub of hummus and start dipping those carrots?!

5 Mess-Free Healthy On The Go Snacks Snacks Energy Bars/Ball

These homemade goodies are everywhere on pinterest! There are so many recipes and flavours to choose from. They are perfect for making at the weekend to be stored in the fridge for the week and grabbed whenever you feel peckish or packed in some tupperware for on the go. Here are some recipes which look delicious:

Trek Protein Bars

If you don't have time to make your own, or you're just too lazy to (I'm guilty of that more often than not), then these protein bars* from trek are perfect! With them being a packed with vegan protein, up to 10g (I'm no expert on that kind of stuff, but I know that's very good), they are super filling. Seriously, whenever I'm hungry and tuck into one of these, I find I'm not hungry for a good 3 hours at least. Plus, because they are packaged, it means even less mess.

These bars of deliciousness are also:
• Wheat free
• Gluten free
• Transfats free
• GM free
• Vegan friendly

The guys over at Nature Balance Foods very kindly sent a mixed box of the flapjacks to try - I've got to say that my favourite would probably have to be the cocoa coconut, simply because it tastes like a bounty. But they are all delicious! Also, I love the idea of buying a large mixed box as it is, not only convenient, but also works out cheaper.

One last thing, I found the 'best before' thing quite funny.

Rice Cakes

Not just any rice cakes, baby rice cakes. Yes, you heard me. You need to head to the baby food isle in the supermarket and pick up a bag or two of their flavoured rice cakes. My favourite are the berry ones! Plus, because they are made for toddlers, they don't have anything bad or harmful in them.


This is an obvious one but it's a great one to add to the list. Personally, I always opt for bananas - not only because they are my favourite fruit, but because they don't really cause much mess. Well, I say they don't cause much mess but if you don't put them in a tupperware box then you run the risk of having it become squished all over the other items in your bag; trust me, I've had that happen to me on multiple occasions. 

Another reason I go for bananas is that they are the most filling, have one or two and you're good to go for a good while. Whereas with things like apples, you'd have to eat quite a lot as I tend to get hungry 15 minutes later after eating one.

Dried Fruit

Having dried fruit to hand is brilliant! Because it's like eating a healthy sweet (that actually tastes good). Dried figs are probably my favourite option and sometimes dates - plus, if you eat a good handful, they are quite filling.
