We propose a mechanism to suppress heating in periodically driven many-body quantum systems by employing sufficiently long-range interactions and experimentally relevant initial conditions. The mechanism is robust to local perturbations and does \emph{not} rely on disorder or high driving frequencies. Instead, it makes use of an approximate fragmentation of the many-body spectrum of the non-driven system into bands, with band gaps that grow with the system size. We show that when these systems are driven, there is a regime where \emph{decreasing} the driving frequency \emph{decreases} heating and entanglement build-up. This is demonstrated numerically for a prototypical system of spins in one dimension, but the results can be readily generalized to higher dimensions.
