Quench your thirst
Travelling is dehydrating so ensure you pack lots of fluids. Water is always best but if you want something with taste, choose water infused with fruit or coconut water.
Wrap it up
Pack wholegrain good-carb wraps with fillings such as roasted vegetables, chicken salad or tuna and sweetcorn. Add low-fat crème fraiche for a healthy alternative to mayonnaise.
Bags of health
Bag up healthy unsalted or unsweetened snacks such as salt free nuts and seeds, snap pea crisps, kale chips or plain popcorn.
Fruit is nutritious and tasty, but opt for whole fruits rather than tinned or dried which have a higher sugar content.
Raising the bar
Bars are ideal for travelling but choose ones that contain 3-4 grams of protein and fibre, less than 10 grams of sugar and no artificial sweeteners. Even better, make them yourself at home following our:
