Finding nutritious, low calorie snack options that are gluten-free can be a difficult prospect when trying to lose pregnancy weight.
If you are sensitive to gluten or suffer from coeliac disease, there are many snack options to include in your healthy eating plan that are suitable for your dietary needs.
These 7 low calorie, snack ideas are healthy, provide nutritional benefits and don’t contain gluten so can be included in your diet if you have to avoid gluten.

As a general rule, try to stay away from packaged, processed gluten-free snacks options as while they may not contain gluten, they often contain high amounts of saturated fat, refined sugar and other additives.
Stick to naturally gluten-free foods like fresh fruit and vegetables, raw nuts, seeds and natural yoghurt.
1. Strawberries with Plain Greek Yoghurt & Almond Meal 
Simple take a punnet of strawberries, cut each strawberry in half and top with a small dollop of reduced-fat natural Greek Yoghurt and sprinkle a two tablespoons of almond meal on top for a sweet snack option that is high in calcium, fibre and vitamin C.
