All of The Happy Snack Company products have a Five Star Health Rating.

The Health Star Rating system aims to help consumers make healthier choices by clearly labelling packaged food according to nutritional profile.  Stars are calculated using:

  • Energy (kilojoules)
  • Risk nutrients – saturated fat, sodium (salt) and sugars
  • Positive nutrients – dietary fibre, protein and the proportion of fruit, vegetable, nut and legume content.

Ranging from the lowest rating of ½ a star to the highest rating of five stars, the more stars a product has, the healthier it is.

All of the The Happy Snack Company products have been awarded a Five Star Health Rating, so you can be assured you’re making a great choice

All of The Happy Snack Company snacks are 100% gluten free.

Many people suffer from gluten intolerances, coeliac disease or simply choose to follow a gluten-free diet which can often make finding nutritious and delicious gluten-free snacks difficult. We’re pleased to say that all of The Happy Snack Company Chic Pea and Fav-va Bean products are guaranteed gluten-free, so healthy snacking just got a little bit easier.

Happy Snack Company snacks are great for school lunches

With the prevalence of food allergies and childhood obesity increasing year on year, and more and more schools ‘nut free zones’, it is now critical for parents to be aware of exactly what is going into their child’s school lunch box. This can be a source of anxiety for many parents who aren’t sure of what they should and should not include. Happily, all of our products are nut and gluten free and do not contain wheat, dairy or eggs. Naturally high in fibre and protein, low in fat and free from artificial additives, our happy snacks are a quick, easy option you can trust. Now in Kids Pizza and BBQ flavours in convenient, lunch box friendly 15 gram packs, they’ll love the crunchy taste, and you’ll love knowing you’re giving them a nutritious, wholesome snack.

Fava beans and chickpeas are naturally high in fibre

One of the many fantastic nutritional benefits of both fava beans and chickpeas is that they are naturally high in fibre.  Fibre is an essential part of a healthy diet and helps maintain good digestive health, maintains blood sugar levels and assists with reducing the absorption of cholesterol into the bloodstream, which can help to reduce the risk of developing heart disease and can aid in managing diabetes.

Fava beans and chickpeas are naturally high in protein and low in fat and kilojoules

Adding to the long list of health benefits these wonderful little legumes can boast is that they are a fantastic source of protein and are low in fat and kilojoules. Protein is essential for the human body to perform the most basic of tasks. One cup of cooked chickpeas equates to a serving of protein – pretty impressive! Plus, they are low in fat and kilojoules – making an excellent addition to a healthy diet.

The Happy Snack Company snacks are free from wheat, dairy and eggs

Adhering to a diet that excludes wheat, dairy or eggs isn’t easy, but we hope to make it a little simpler with our delicious range of Chic Peas and Fav-va beans that are totally free of all three. Just chickpea  and fava beans, roasted to perfection and tossed in seasonings you could find in your pantry, and nothing else. Enjoy!

Fava beans and chickpeas are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals

Both of these little wonder foods are jam packed with goodness and dense with nutrition. Both contain folate, magnesium, iron, B-group vitamins, zinc, manganese, copper and phosphorus.

The Happy Snack Company products are grown, made and packed in Australia, and come from crops that restore Australian soils.

All of our Chic Peas and Fav-va beans are grown right here in Australia and are processed and packed at our purpose built facility in sunny Queensland. Chickpeas not only produce a valuable crop but at the same time also provide a natural organic method of breaking the disease cycle in other valuable food crops. This means less fungicide, less insecticide and a cleaner, greener environment. Chickpeas are powerful nitrogen fixing legumes. Their deep root system plays an important role in stabilising soils and preventing erosion. These clever little plants actually restore depleted soils.
