Keep in mind that having any kind of food in your mouth, will affect the way you sound on the phone-- even if it's a "quiet" food. If you're going to attempt to "eat" while talking on the phone, your best bet might be a liquid (smoothie etc) that is swallowed immediatley so you're not actually trying to talk with food in your mouth. Otherwise, a small bite of almost anything, that you can chew and swallow quickly in case the phone rings. I've talked to businesspeople on the phone who were actually eating while talking, and yes even with "quiet" foods.... it's noticeable and unprofessional.
