Top 5 football snacks

In a rush to get to the game and don’t know what to eat or drink to get you through the game? Elite sports nutritionist Matt Lovell is here to help. "The best snacks have a mixture of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Depending how soon kick-off is will determine what you should eat," says Lovell, who works with the England rugby team and Premier League outfit Tottenham. "You want to avoid the traditional favourites, like a chocolate bar or cakes that you think are going to give you energy. Instead, eat something that is going to release its energy slowly and that is not high in fibre."
