any dried fruit and some crystallised ginger but remember that all these items are quite high in sugar so you'll need to have a water bottle as well - better still how about some seasonal fresh fruit and then there are the obvious ones e. g. biscuits, cakes, lollies, etc. but the fruit options are somewhat healthier and there are bags/packets of dried but "ready to eat" fruit available (apricots, figs, peaches, prunes or there is a mixture of that consists of apple, apricot, peaches, pear - I think that's all) but again I remind you that they really are sweet.

Hope that helps. :-))
