Most instant noodles are made of refined flour (maida) and are deep fried before they are packaged. This makes them high on empty calories and fat, and low on nutrition. We all get hunger pangs that need instant gratification – at such times, we should be looking for healthy snack options that are tasty as well, like wholegrain snacks such as multigrain puffs and the savoury masala oats. They satiate your cravings because of their high fibre content and you need to eat small quantities to feel full and satisfied. They come in a wide range of flavours, have 70% less fat than instant noodles and also 50% less calories. It’s a great option for guilt free snacking.
