A-Z Superfood Snacks

That 3pm office snack usually ends up as anything that will get you free the last couple of hours washed down with a cuppa. And that usually means something high in sugar that leaves you slumped and flagging…not the effect you were going for!
Finding the right things to eat as part of a balanced, enriching diet is a daily struggle for millions. In our hectic lives we seldom stop to think about what the best choices are when it comes to meals.

While there’s no official definition of what one is, ‘superfoods’ are generally considered to be foods which are particularly efficient at providing the body with nutrients and health benefits.

Supplementing your regular diet with a selection of these consumables is an easy way to supercharge your health, without going hungry.

Nuffield Health’s research team looked into the most beneficial foods and have created a complete A-Z list of foods that provide the most bang for bite when it comes to vitamins and other healthy nutrients.
