How to manage a snack attack

032a2ddb08a70476980796a86b86ae6e.jpgWorking and learning from home means that a snack attack can occur at any time!

I’m often looking for ideas for a quick and easily portable snack to go keep the kids’ hunger at bay or even to have when we’re out and about on our daily exercise.

We seem to end up having the same things every day though, or reaching for something with a high sugar content – so we thought it would be helpful to compile a list of ideas to save the day when hunger strikes!
