Low FODMAP snacks to buy in the supermarket
You probably know by now that it is smart to have some snacks with you when you are following the low FODMAP diet or that it is good to bake a snack at home, so you have something healthy to take with you to work.
On my blog, you find lots of inspiration for that, for example in these blogs:

In real life, it just doesn’t always work that way.
Sometimes you are on the way to work and you suddenly feel like having a snack.
Or you forgot to take a snack with you to work and you go out in your break to buy yourself something to snack on.

If you are very sensitive to lactose, this might be too much for you. Test your own tolerance level to know what you can and can’t tolerate. If you choose chocolate with extra ingredients, make sure that no high FODMAP ingredient have been added.
