High protein snack ideas after bariatric surgery

As most patients are aware, it’s important to prioritise protein intake after bariatric surgery. It can feel hard to keep this in mind when eating snacks, especially eating snacks on the go.

We’ve complied a list of some easy high-protein snack options to help you reach your daily protein requirements (generally 60-80g each day).

Make an appointment to see one of our dietitians if you’re uncertain about your specific needs or are struggling to meet your needs with whole foods rather than protein powder.
