What is the Best Snack for the Office?

Adults in the U.S. spend a lot of their lives at work. As a matter of fact, studies estimate the average person spends about 1/3 of their lifetime at the office.

Sustaining your energy throughout the day is essential to maximizing productivity in the workplace. It’s challenging to identify the nutritious snacks from the large assortment of unhealthy options, but once you do it makes all the difference. Here are some tips to help you navigate the tricky territory of office snacks and ensure that you can feel good about what you’re eating.

It can be difficult to compare the health of one snack to another, however, snacking in moderation is a good rule of thumb to live by in or out of the office. A midmorning or midday snack is extremely beneficial for productivity during the workday, but it’s important to realize that a snack is not a meal. Most snacking options available in the office are limited to candy, chips, and various other prepackaged items, all of which embody on-the-go convenience. Although a snack-sized portion may appear innocent, chances are it contains a meal’s worth of calories, and likely won’t satiate you for very long. Exploring better, healthier alternatives for snacks to munch on in the office can make all the difference in future health.
