A fit, well-balanced lifestyle is all the rage right now — as we become increasingly particular about consuming healthier food options, hawker stalls have also doled out more nutritious dining choices in their menus to encourage us to eat healthily.

Gone are the days of salt-laden or greasy hawker food, as these hawkers are serving low-calorie food choices and using healthier ingredients such as healthier cooking oils, wholegrains as well as lower-sugar drinks.

For the uninitiated, eating more wholegrains are full of nutrients and aids in reducing the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart diseases, diabetes and certain cancers. Those who have been feasting during the festive season will be happy to know that wholegrains may help you to manage your weight as they provide bulk to the diet. This promotes the feeling of fullness and helps reduce the risk of overeating!

These healthier meal options will be here to stay, as they are part of the stall’s permanent core menu offerings. Diners can expect various hawker stalls serving different items — from savoury snacks such as toasts or Min Jiang Kueh to the well-loved Hainanese Chicken Rice — to be actively participating in the Healthier Dining Programme.

Here are five different hawker stalls in Singapore that have rolled out wholegrain options in their menu!


ChocGoji Chocolate Covered Wolfberries Snack



Who loves wolfberries (also known as Goji berries) as I do? I am very familiar with wolfberries because my mom uses it to prepare oriental soups. For her, wolfberries are one of the key ingredients, as they are believed to be beneficial to the eyes, liver and kidney. Moreover, it is a natural sweetener – soups cooked with wolfberries are so much more flavourful. So boy, was I surprised when I found out about ChocGoji – chocolate covered wolfberries. Oh my god.

I love chocolate, and I love having wolfberries in my soup. But I would never have imagined covering wolfberries with chocolate. I think the Chocgoji’s slogan sums it up perfectly: chocolates-coated wolfberry is a match made in heaven.

If you are like me, snacking all the time, why not give ChocGoji a try? They come in three different chocolate coatings; milk chocolate, dark chocolate and sugar-free chocolate.
