Didn’t think you could pick up a healthy meal in the same place as your coffee? The Starbucks nutritional team share the best breakfasts, lunches and drinks to keep you going all day.

No time to make a smoothie bowl? Too busy to spiralise your lunch? You’re not alone. Nearly 50% of us don’t have time to sit down and eat a healthy breakfast and lunch is the meal most commonly eaten on the go. The good news? Even when you’re in a rush, you can still have a tasty, balanced meal.

Whether you’re looking for something low-calorie, high-protein or just fancy mixing up your meals, we asked the nutrition experts at Starbucks for their choice of grab-and-go dishes to fuel your day.

For breakfast

  1. Berry Crunch

Start the day with this Greek-style yogurt topped with crunchy granola and mixed berry compote. The yogurt is a source of protein, and that protein helps to maintain muscle mass. Calories: 250

  1. Super Scrambled Egg Hot Box

Grab an egg hot box for a tasty combination of free-range scrambled eggs, slow-roasted cherry tomatoes, spinach and mixed seeds. Eggs are a great source of protein and vitamin D, which is good for teeth and bones – the perfect brekkie. Calories: 211
