Feeling peckish between meals? Rather than indulging in fatty, salty or sugary foods try out these healthy snack ideas instead.

Grab an apple, banana or satsuma - All packed with vitamins and perfect if you're in a rush as you don't need to spend lots of time preparing them.

Dip some vegetable sticks - Carrot, cucumber, celery or even stem broccoli. Not only will they count towards your 5 a day but they're great for dunking into tasty dips such as hummus, salsa and guacamole.

Scoop a handful of raisins or other dried fruit - Packed with energy and fibre and great way to indulge a sweet tooth without lots of added sugar.

Pick up a packet of nuts or seeds - A good source of omega 3.

Pop some popcorn - A tasty way to incorporate wholegrains into your diet. Look for unsalted popcorn with natural flavours.

Try a low fat yoghurt - Give you and baby a calcium boost.
