Healthy is as healthy eats. We’ve all been told to watch what we eat and that binge eating while you binge-watch your latest HBO series on the couch is the epitome of ‘bad for you’ With so much advice out there as to what’s good and what’s bad for you, here are the top healthy snacking tips for 2021. It’s a list based on what’s hot and what’s healthy at the moment.

The top five trending healthy snacks for 2021 include:

1. Sour pops/worms/bears/jelly babies, anything with tang and fizz. The secret is to remember that they should only contain natural sugars, no high fructose corn syrup This may be a bit of a journey of discovery as there are many options, but keep it simple. Look for the low sugars, sugar-free, and organic options that are soured with natural citric acid. Or add health benefits and find those that have added vitamin C.


2. CBD gummies, the total anti-stress, feel-good snack. Snacking and reducing stress have not always been thought to go together, but these are a new options for any health-conscious individual. Go with a reputable supplier and ensure that they have noted/declared that there is no THC in the gummies. Herbal Health CBD has a wide range of edibles and is a great source of information on the subject. For those of you looking to reduce stress in a healthy way, these are worth a try.


3. Nuts and anything nutty. Unless you have an allergy, nuts are all the rage. Good roughage, good proteins, and a great selection make these a natural choice for healthy snacking. No longer is it only the humble peanut, but globalization and the internet provide access to all sorts of nuts. From Brazilian to conifer and pine nuts, you can taste them all. Again, a word of warning, miss this step if you have a nut allergy.


4. Chickpea, lentil, and seed bars. All pulses, such as chickpeas and lentils, are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, fibers, and proteins. These days you can find them in a range of different flavors and forms. Just be sure to check that they aren’t fried or contain too much sugar. The advantages of chickpeas go beyond just the body and are also great for your skin. They help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase the elasticity of the skin and contain magnesium for overall skin health


5. Blue fruit (perhaps because the Smurfs are still cool) has seen a marked increase in popularity. From blueberries to elderberries, blackberries, and grapes, these colorful fruits are powerful sources of vitamins and antioxidants. They reduce inflammation, and research has shown that they can help keep heart disease and type 2 diabetes at bay. Blue fruit must be part of any meal or a regular snack during the day.
