    hi everyone. oh and i don't take lunch to work as we both prefer snacking than sandwiches etc. looking for ideas, something cheap that we can make and take to work to nibble at throughout the day. crisps and chocolate has got to stop, it's just too expensive/unhealthy!

    Hi doodah,

    Some snack ideas on these older threads:

    Healthy snacks

    Healthy snacks for kids


    Could you take some cuppa soups, crackers, fruit etc to work and keep it in your desk? If you have access to a fridge, what about yoghurts, cheese etc

    I take cup-a-soups
    chopped salad
    melon, grapes
    carrot sticks
    crackers

    They are healthy, and passes the urge to snack on crisps/chocolate.
    Eat as much as the above, and dont feel guilty.
    Only occasional I take sandwiches, as Im too trying to cut back the bread.
