I keep pumpkin seeds, whole wheat crackers, and peanut butter in my snack drawer at work. I have to divide the crackers into single servings ahead of time, otherwise I might eat the entire package thru mindless munching.
I keep trail mix, string cheese and celery in my lunch box for a quick snack in my lunch box. It is important to plan ahead. On Sundays I pre bag my trail mix and cut a couple days of celery. So all I have to do is grab what I want and put it into my lunch box.
they make shelf stable applesauce [i love the mott's healthy harvest or just the store brand apples and water only kind] as well as pear sauce. but if you have some extra time on a shopping trip one time, check out the aisle that has the lunch stuff for kids. they make tons of shelf stable options in small packages, and while you have to do some label reading, there are tons of options depending on your likes and needs.

Some good ideas on here and I plan to make some snacks into little containers as nuts in particular can have many calories and I love them.

organic apple and nuts- I measure out unsalted nuts into 1 oz snack bags. When I know I am going to be out of the house for awhile I take some with me.

I do happen to have a insulated bag, but I find it hard to remember to pack snacks before going to work. I have five kids and it is often pretty crazy in the mornings.
I appreciate all the suggestions. I plan to try some of them next week.

Fruit pots in natural juice as well, they dont need to go in fridge :)
I keep pre-portioned servings of dry cereal, almonds, crackers, dried cranberries, fresh fruit (apples and oranges), a jar of peanut butter, and sugar free hard candy in my office in a sealed tub. Nice to have on hand!
I always keep homemade trail mix in my desk. Dietitian Becky

I'm looking for ideas on good snacks to have at the office. I would prefer snacks that do not have to refrigerated, the fridges are already packed by others. Currently I'm eating bananas and dry roasted peanuts.
