Snacking between meals and at bedtime helps top up your blood glucose levels. Healthy snacks will also give you energy to get through your day. You can also choose snacks that combine carbs, protein and fat to satisfy your hunger. To be prepared for hypos, carry fruit, biscuits or cereal bars in your bag or pocket, along with glucose tablets. It's always important to snack before and after physical activity. Simple, portable snack ideas include mini packs of dried fruit, cereal, bread sticks and dip, pretzels, rice crackers, yoghurt or a small carton of skimmed or semi-skimmed milk.
