mamafox - so pleased to hear you are much better but treat yourself gently for the rest of the week.
It's not jelly babies I use but fruit jellies but most sweets of that nature are high in carbs so choose what suits you and what you like and what you find easy to eat.. Yes, 3 an hour is fine. It's recommended to take 30g to 60g of carbs per hour, but 60g is hard to do. I also use dates (soft and pitted) and marshmallows, both easy to eat. And sometimes a little chocolate too but usually I keep that for ultras.
