During your walk up Snowdon  you’ll need plenty of food and water. Chocolate gives a good quick energy boost, but a proper packed lunch with fruit provides a more balanced nutrition. In hot weather, excessive sweating may mean you need to replace salt, with a good isotonic drink helping you replace this.

You’ll need to take at least 2 litres of water to be safe, definitely more if it’s exceptionally hot. Water or diluted fruit juice are good to keep your thirst quenched and contain natural fruit sugars, unlike many fizzy drinks. In cooler weather, a flask is always welcome at lunch stops.
