Not fruit.

Nothing against fruit but want something else. It's for tuck at primary school (which imo is nonsense anyway, they don't need it, they are not going to starve to death between breakfast and lunch, but they all take it).

I don't really want to give them cereal bars because I think most of them are crap and I might as well give them a Twix.

Thanks in advance.

No it can't. If you need to eat less of something, then it isn't healthy.

I think you obviously can include sugar as part of a balanced diet. I eat plenty of it myself. However, the OP asked for 'healthy snacks', Naked bars are not a healthy snack as it is chock full of sugar.

Well said LittleBaby.

TheAwfulDaughter these bars contain sugar from fructose, which gives a sustained release of energy in comparison to chocolate etc. The nut content is also really high, so they are a good source of protein, some of them are high in iron and the fats are monounsaturated fats. I'd much rather eat something like this that is essentially dried fruit and nuts smashed together, than recommend a highly manufactured snack product that may be full of crap.

What's wrong with bread and butter or a Marmite sandwich?
