Lunchbox Treats: Flapjack
Flapjacks are something that make a great lunchbox treat because they are both sweet and filling. Having lunch and then still being hungry is something that nobody wants, so as a lunchbox treat, flapjacks can be a filling little extra. Whether you want to bake them yourself for a weekend activity or stock up on your favourite Regal Foods flapjacks, they are the perfect treat for making sure that you have had a substantial amount of food at dinner. Choose from our Regal Foods Choc Chip or our coconut flapjacks.
Lunchbox Treats: Dried Fruit
Dried fruit is one of the much more healthy snacks to have when it comes to your lunchbox treats. Dried fruit is deliciously sweet and long-lasting and unlike other fruits, don’t need to be stored in the fridge which, if you’re packing a lunchbox, is ideal! Here at regal foods, we have a selection of delicious dried fruits that are a great lunchbox treat, including dried apricots and dried figs.
Lunchbox Treats: Mixed Nuts
Mixed nuts are another great lunchbox treat that you can add to your packed lunch to keep it healthy. They add an element of texture, crunch and are the perfect savoury snack to complement other lunchbox treats.
Mixed nuts are packed full of healthy fats, protein and fibre so really are the perfect lunchbox treat if you’re looking to be a little healthier! You don’t need many to get the benefits and a handful sized amount is enough to act as a lunchbox snack. Maybe you could choose a Bombay mix for your lunchbox treat. You could also choose a balti mix that contains dry noodles, chickpeas and peanuts to mix things up!
