Fruit and nut mixes make for a really satisfying and tasty snack and a healthy alternative to old favourites such as biscuits, crisps and chocolate bars.
A bag of mixed fruits or nuts is perfect for staving off those snack cravings between meals and, better still, it’s a snack that’s also good for you.
Not just great for a snack, you can also add fruit and nut mixes to cereal, porridge or yogurt for a nutritional breakfast, as well as using them to numerous baking recipes. Brighten up boring flapjack or breathe new life into homemade granola.
Kids love them too: why not add them to your child’s school lunch box or hand them out as snacks at home, rather than let them reach for the biscuit tin?
Eating just one variety of fruit or nut on its own could get a little bit repetitive, so these mixes are the perfect solution for a range of textures and taste combinations in one product.
Choose from dried mixed fruit, mixed nuts, or even go wild and go for a combination of the two!
If you like the idea of mixing the crunchy texture of nuts with the soft, succulent texture of dried fruit, this is the perfect snack for you.
Mixed nuts are a great source of protein as well as containing lots of fibre which is important for supporting a healthy digestive system and maintaining normal bowel function.
Walnuts, peanuts and almonds in particular are all great sources of protein.
Some fruit and nut mixes are also suitable for someone following a plant based diet and from a nutritional point of view, can be very beneficial.
It can often be quite a challenge to get the right amount of protein your body needs when following a vegan diet – thankfully, nuts are packed full of it.
