6 of the Simplest, Fastest and Most Filling Snack Ideas for School/Uni

By: Jumana

We all know those days, when we’re at school or uni and hadn’t packed a lunch or a snack because, why pack a lunch when you can have an extra half hour of sleep, am I right? Well, we’ve all been there, we’ve all experienced it and honestly, I’m tired of being hungry all day so I went on a three-day research journey to find the easiest, healthiest ( I mean, I tried?) and most convenient snacks for school. 

Frozen grapes

Basically, what you do is you get a packet of grapes and throw them in the freezer. 

Leave them overnight and voila! Frozen grapes.

 Honestly, these are great for those hot summer days, because not only are they, basically, healthy cold treats, but grapes are also very beneficial. Actually mesh haned7ak 3ala ba3d, anything is more beneficial than kees shipsy men canteen el madrasa. 

Chia seed pudding

Now this is more of a breakfast type of meal than a midday snack but meh, it works and it’s very filling. 

Okay so, how to prepare:

  • Add 3 tablespoons of chia seeds to every 1 cup of milk. 
  • Mix well (you can add cocoa powder for chocolate chia pudding) 
  • Cover the cup/ plate and put in the fridge overnight

Before school the next morning, all you have to do is transfer it to a container you can go to school with.

Optional: (Seeing as we’re in summer and its pomegranate season) Add pomegranate seeds for extra taste, crunch and nutrition. 

  • If you want, you can add any other fruits or maybe even cinnamon powder.

Sandwich bites

This is a very versatile type of snack. You can make this sweet, savory, vegan or basically anything you want. 

For the savory version: 

  • Get 2 slices of toast
  • Spread any type of cream cheese that you like on both toast pieces
  • Add cucumbers, tomatoes, mint and/or basil. 
  • Cut up the toast into 4 pieces, so they can be bite-size and more snack-like. 

You can change this up however you want, add smoked turkey, other types of cheese or even other vegetables

For the sweet version: 

  • Get 2 slices of toast
  • Spread peanut butter or any other nut butter on both toast pieces 
  • Add banana slices, apple slices or strawberries 
  • Cut up the toast into 4 pieces, so they can be bite-size and more snack-like. 

You can also change this up however you want, I personally like adding Nutella on one of the toast pieces and peanut butter on the other, in the end, it balances out well. 

Fruits 

Instead of bringing a chocolate bar to school, just bring along fruits. This trick in this one, is to find out which fruits act as chocolate bars and give the most energy. 

  • Dates 

Dates are extremely nutritious; they’re high in iron, complex carbohydrates, potassium and vitamin B-6, they also boost your protein intake of the day, so that’s a plus.

  • Cucumbers 

Cucumbers are one of the most hydrating and refreshing foods out there, they have anti-inflammatory properties, they’re also rich in vitamin C, K, A and potassium. 

  • Carrots 

Carrots are very easy to come by, and they have a humongous amounts of benefits. 1 carrot holds 334% of a person’s daily Vitamin A content! They’re also filled with vitamin C, calcium and iron. 

Sweet potato chips

I’m only adding this here, instead of regular chips because sweet potato chips are fancier, duuhh!

Actually, comparing both types of potatoes, regular potatoes are more nutritious, but I’m tired of seeing yellow fries every day, so, orange is the new yellow, I guess? 

Just fry these in the morning, or if you’re looking for the healthier option, bake them in the oven for 30 minutes before school and there you go! Comfort food available all day to snack on. 

Bo2sumat and Cream Cheese dip

Honestly, the name is pretty self-explanatory, just pack a bunch of bo2sumat in your school bag and add any cream cheese of your liking to a small lunch box, and dip your way through the day! 
This is all I have for this article, I hope you try those out and bon appétit!
