Good job realizing that cravings come when tired. Some say it's because your blood sugar drops and your brain is trying to tell you to get some shut eye or eat to stay awake.

So a few things you can do... eat something that takes awhile to digest before going into work. Healthy fats, like nut butters will stick with you longer.

You will probably start craving the sugars, like doughnuts, cookies, and candy. Try a piece of fruit that takes awhile to eat, like a pomegranet or orange. They are pretty forgiving being set down if an emergency arises as well and can wait for your return without melting or cooling.

If it's straight tiredness, try getting some more sleep and better quality of sleep.

If it's boredom, start little contest or bets with co-workers. If you are doing the paperwork and starting to nod off, walk to the ladies room and splash water and spend a minute with the hand dryer on your face (not too close).

If you have gained the boredom instant hand grab if there's food out - try balancing a pen/pencil on your nose. No quick grabs while it's on there, and it makes it nearly impossible to chew. Also slightly entertaining.
