Healthy Snacks for Your Office

Healthy Snacks for Your Office

If you provide refreshments and nibbles for your employees, you will want to ensure it is good brain food!

If your employees work long hours, you may feel inclined to stock the office kitchen with snacks to see them through. While this is certainly a good idea, there are many misconceptions about snacks that are considered to be energy boosters! In short, the sugary snacks and artificial bites are not benefitting your employees’ waistline, health, or concentration.

Donate or throw away:

  • Sugary drinks – Full of chemicals that do not benefit your body at all, this liquid is not doing your employees any good.
  • Chocolate and sweets – After a sugar rush of a chocolate bar or a bag of candy, your employees will come off the high feeling lethargic and sluggish.

Replace with:

  • Bottled water – everyone needs hydration.
  • Almonds – great source of protein and are extremely sustaining.
  • Fresh fruit – packed with vitamins and minerals, these sweet beauties will keep your employees satisfied.
  • Dried fruit – mix things up with dried apricots, apple slices, and banana chips. They are sweet, and high in fiber and potassium.
  • Protein bar – stock up on only the natural bars that have fewer than 200 calories.
  • Pretzels – salty, low in fat, and will hold any employee over until lunch or dinner.
  • Apples and peanut butter – apples provide fiber and carbs for energy while the peanut butter provides healthy fat and protein, which stabilizes blood sugar ups and downs.
