Pro Tips

Variety is key! Include a mixture of colors, textures and flavors to keep things interesting.

Aim for a balance of protein, carbs and healthy fats to keep you feeling full and satisfied.

Fiber keeps you feeling fuller for longer and aids digestion, so make sure to include some fibrous options like berries, leafy greens or chia seeds.

Save time and avoid last-minute scrambling by prepping your snacks in advance. Wash and chop fruits and veggies, portion out nuts and seeds and hard-boil a few eggs for easy grabbing and go-ing.

Tailor your snack box to your specific needs and preferences. If you have dietary restrictions, choose snacks that fit.

Make snack time fun! Arrange your snacks in a visually appealing way or even get creative with food art to make your box extra special.
