Here are five healthy snacks that are good for your hair, skin and nails.


Krumbled Foods Beauty Bites

The ultimate beauty snack for girls on-the-go. These delicious Beauty Bites are jam-packed with anti-aging ingredients including collagen, probiotics, prebiotics, vitamin C and vitamin E. If you want proof that these bites are legit, just check out founder Keria Rumble’s glowing complexion (trust me, you’ll be stocking your pantry full of Beauty Bites). The bites are available in three flavours: Apple & Cinnamon, Lemon & Coconut and White Choc Raspberry.

Dark chocolate

Need an excuse to eat more chocolate? Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, so you can satisfy your sweet tooth with the guilt. Just make sure you’re choosing dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa (sorry, Cadbury doesn’t count).

Almonds

Almonds are such an easy snack to keep in your handbag. A healthy handful of almonds will give you a hefty hit of micronutrients including zinc and iron. They’re also full of magnesium and are a good source of protein, making them an ideal beauty snack to reach for in between your main meals.

Chia Pod

These little seeds are full of antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids, making them a potent anti-ageing food. On their own chia seeds aren’t the most delicious snack on the menu, but these chia pods let you have your dose of chia in an on-the-go mix of seeds in coconut milk. Plus, they’re available in four yummy flavours: Dark Cacao, Vanilla Bean, Coconut and Apple Spice.

Avocado

If you’re looking for a reason to feel less guilty about your avocado toast habit, this is it: Avocados are full of benefits for your hair, skin and nails. They’re high in good fats which will help to moisturise dry complexions from the inside out. And they even have more potassium than a banana! Cut one in half, sprinkle a touch of salt on top and use carrot sticks as dippers for an arvo snack with a multitude of benefits.
