Training for a Ribbon Walk or just walking for fitness? Check out our daily tips in our 30 day walking fitness plan

Day 28 – think about food!
Food for the Ribbon Walk day that is.

Our Homes Editor Emma Morton Turner who’s walked and run marathons has her favourite snacks:

“I take jelly beans for a sugar rush when energy flags. Sandwiches for lunch because I like to eat and walk. Plus biscuits for the odd snack. Oh and lots of water – that’s the most important thing.”

Jelly Belly are her favourite beans but look for their Sport Beans - £1.25 a pack formulated with good carbs, electrolytes plus vitamins B and C. They’re portable power.
