Balanced snacks are important for athletes to fuel their training and provide energy for recovery, and knowing what to eat shouldn’t be a difficult task.
To make deciding what to eat at snack time a little easier and to know if its right to prepare and recovery from training you just need to break it down to the sum of its parts to ensure you have a contribution of a predominately carbohydrate food and a predominately protein food.

Note: If heading into training you might need to double the carb serve of the bigger snack.
