We love the summer sun but it can be a pain when deciding what to bring to a picnic. Here are some of our recommendations for fuss-free snacks that could become your next picnic staple.
For a yummy and healthy snack bar, check out Fitbakes' range, available in Belgian Chocolate, Hazelnut Chocolate and Chocolate Orange. Handmade in Britain, these crunch snacks are made with natural ingredients, low in sugar and high in protein. Whether you're replenishing lost energy from an active weekend, or just want to curb sugar cravings in a healthy way, these bars make the perfect picnic snack.
iLove Snacks' Gently Dehydrated Mango is the perfect sweet fix, that’ll deliver a refreshing tropical taste, without too much sugar. Each pack is calorie controlled and hand-picked, so you know you’re looking after yourself and the environment.
Don’t want to miss out on chocolate just because it's boiling outside? Try Doisy and Dam's Dark Chocolate Drops! The handy sugar casing means these delicious treats won’t melt in the sun! They’re similar to smarties, but are made from ethically sourced Columbian chocolate, as well as being vegan and free from palm oil.
Staying hydrated is really important, so check out some of our refreshing drinks from small brands, dedicated to making healthier beverages.
