A few months ago while searching for the Fridge Raiders, I came across a range of snacks I hadn't seen before. These ready-to-eat chilled, savoury snacks are made by Deli 24, a new name to me. They have an interesting selection of meaty snacks (see below), which appear to be aimed at the children’s market.
These snacks are individually wrapped and are handy to pack into lunch boxes (my kids love them). Not just that, they’re low in calories (great for slimmers), and have a high protein content with no artificial colours or flavours.
Here’s what Deli 24 have to say about their product range:
'We all know how important it is to eat a balanced diet – especially when you’re growing up! And as kids grow, they need plenty of calcium to help their teeth and bones grow strong and healthily. A Deli 24 stick is a great source of calcium, and is perfect for popping in their lunchbox or as an after-school snack. All the nutritional information is clearly marked on the back of each snack for you to clearly see.Here are 6 reasons why Deli 24 snacks are a healthy and delicious snack for your kids (or for you!):
• High in protein
• Meat has no added water
• Real cheese
• Reduced Salt
• Low in sugar
• No Artificial colours or flavours.
It’s not easy to figure out what to put in your kid’s lunchbox – it needs to be healthy and balanced but tasty and fun too!'As you can see they are mainly aimed at children. But of course there’s no reason why everyone can’t enjoy them. I find them particularly useful when I want to grab a snack from the fridge and don’t want to have to think about calories. And children are always after something to snack on (well mine are) and I feel happy letting them eat these.

You can find Deli 24 snacks in Tesco, ASDA, Sainsbury’s, Budgens, Londis and more. See website for more information. However, from my experience, Tesco seems to sell the most varieties.
Take a look at Deli 24’s website. It’s a pleasure to browse. Bright, colourful and full of helpful nutritional information.
