Chapter 4 - Best Low FODMAP Snacks

When you’re also on the FODMAP Diet, you need low-FODMAP snacks that keep you satisfied, energized, and symptom-free. Get your printable list of over 50 Low-FODMAP Snack Ideas, including snack bars, savory snacks, and sweet snacks!

Snacking is often associated with junk food or mindless eating, but that view is too negative. In reality, snacking is essential when you’re busy and on-to-go.

When you’re also on the FODMAP Diet, you need low-FODMAP snacks that keep you satisfied, energized, and symptom-free. That’s not too much to ask for, right?!

Not only is snacking important for convenience, but it can be a great way to manage digestive symptoms. In my experience working with IBS sufferers, eating 4-5 small meals throughout the day can help reduce the discomfort and bloating that might result from large meals.

Rather than just a few generic ideas, I created a master list of over 50 Low-FODMAP Snack Ideas. The list is divided into categories so you can best find what you’re craving, such as:

  • Snack bars for easy, on-to-go options

  • Savory snacks from quick bites to mini meals

  • Sweet snack for when you want to feel satisfied but you’re also craving something sweet
