Top 5 low-calorie snacks

Our bright and zesty super green lollies are made with vitamin-packed fruits and refreshing coconut water for a nutritious summer snack.
Kale makes a fantastic healthy low-fat, low-calorie snack – a great alternative to crisps. Sprinkle with whatever spices you fancy – celery salt or a mild chilli powder would both work well.
5. Energy balls
These little bites are great to have before exercise, or when you feel you’re flagging, as the simple sugars in the fruits will give you an instant boost, and the nuts, nut butters and oats will give you a slow release of energy. We’ve made three flavours but you can create your own using the same idea.
