How much protein is in your snack?

Protein helps us feel full for longer and including it in snacks helps us spread it across the day.

When we feel hungry between meals, we want a healthy snack that’s going to fill us up until our next meal. Research tells us protein gives us more satiety – that feeling of fullness – than carbohydrate or fat in our food. So, choosing snacks higher in protein will help us feel fuller for longer.

We think hard-boiled eggs are the ultimate high-protein snack food. A size 6 egg contains 6.5g protein.

We’ve compared some popular between-meal snacks to see how they measure up.
