When I first moved to Copenhagen in 2008, there weren’t a lot of options in terms of on-the-go healthy food. Food culture in Denmark is still not structured for eating while in transport; that’s not a bad thing. But it does mean that when we occasionally need a pick-me-up during the day, the choices aren’t overwhelming. For those of us with diabetes, other blood sugar issues, or who simply get a little “hangry” on occasion, it’s good to know that there’s something in at the bottom of your bag for those light-headed moments.
Keep in mind that the choices below are not meal replacements. Many of them are high in frutose, which is fruit sugar, so they’re great for a boost but not much else.
The term for food on-the-go in Danish is “mad på farten.” There isn’t really anything else to say after that, is there?
