Each biscuit weighs in at less than 2g of fat and 44 calories and is made with wholegrain oats and no artificial ingredients. A couple of these with a cup of tea satisfies all cravings and provides steady pre-run fuelling. 

Eat natural, peanuts, cashews, cranberry’s and milk chocolate

Eat natural have all sorts of bars on the market but our favourite for that pick-me-up chocolate craving is this one. It’s got just the right balance of chocolate, fruit and nuts to give you sustained energy and a gentle indulgence. Each 50g bar is around 200 calories.

Jaffa cakes

An old school classic and at 1g of fat per cake, a couple of these will satisfy your sweet tooth and provide an energy boost. Just don’t eat the whole packet, it’s easily done as they go down a little too quickly. Two cakes are around 100 calories.

BelVita biscuits, cranberry

Whilst we wouldn’t recommend you regularly swap your breakfast for these packet snacks, they do offer a decent alternative or afternoon snack option. The biscuits are wholegrain and around 50 calories each, low in fat and sugars so provide a slow releasing energy boost. The biscuits are also fortified with vitamins and minerals. 

Soreen lunchbox malt loaves
