How Healthy Is Our Office?

BE AFRAID… be very afraid. A frightening phenomenon is gripping our office today. People’s waistlines are under attack from sneaky snacks.

So we reached out to our team and asked them one question:

What snack do you keep in your desk office drawer?

Here’s a quick summary of the top 5 office snacks (as voted on by our team!):

  1. Candy (6 votes)

  2. Chocolate (3 votes)

  3. Cookies (2 votes)

  4. Fruit (3 votes)

  5. Cake (8 votes)

Sitting at your desk all day can be challenging, especially when 3 pm rolls around and you need a little something to eat. Our first inclination is to head to the fridge and dig through the remnants of the last office celebration, but cookies, candy and cake are not the sustenance you need to get through to the end of the day.

Below you’ll find tips for healthy office snacking that are not only good for you but will also keep you awake and active well past 6 p.m.

Tips for healthy office snacking:

  • It is all about planning in advance! Prepare homemade snacks for the work week; place them in containers ready for you to grab this on your way out in the morning.


  • Introduce your workmates to healthier snacks. Just as your team mate with a sweet tooth shares her love for sugary treats, you can give people a midday boost by sharing extras of your healthy snacks. Who knows—maybe some of them will catch on and begin bringing in their own healthy options to share with everyone.

  • Keep a water bottle on your desk

If the only fluids you tend to consume during your workday are coffee and soft drinks, you need some water. Many people don't realize they're dehydrated. That way, you can sip on it as the day moves along and get the water your body needs without having to think about it. Thirst can affect your concentration, energy and performance.
