The launch of the new Be Natural snack range has been welcomed by Accredited Practising Dietitian, Caitlin Reid, who said that this is a timely launch of a healthy snacking alternative. “Snacking can be a great way to manage hunger and maintain energy levels throughout the day, but it’s important to pay attention to the type of snacks you choose,” said Ms. Reid.
“With potato chips being Australia’s number one snack choice, the Be Natural Thai Sweet Chilli Fava Beans and Moroccan Spice Chickpeas are healthier alternatives that are lower in kilojoules and fat, yet still taste delicious and are also a source of fibre. Digging into your desk drawer and pulling out the portion-controlled Be Natural sweet range can be an exciting addition to a nutritious and well‐balanced diet, allowing us to enjoy a bit of indulgence that is better for us.”
