Healthy Snacking at Work

Make Your Munching Count during Break Time

It's break time at work. As you prop up your swollen feet in the employee break room, the lure of the high-fat donuts and sweet rolls is almost impossible to resist. However, with a little planning, a more healthful choice can be made that will still satisfy your taste buds.

A great thing to do is pack your coffee break "treat" while you are making your lunch in the morning or the night before. Ideas include:
  • muffins
  • cinnamon twists
  • bagels
  • breadsticks
  • popcorn
  • tasty trail mix
  • nuts and bolts
  • fresh fruit and dip
  • string cheese
  • single-serving fruit cups
  • yogurt
  • bagels with light cream cheese and a little jelly
  • baby carrots and dip
  • cheese and crackers
  • dried fruits, nuts, and seeds
  • juice boxes
You can also keep small containers of trail mix and nuts and bolts in your desk. You will always be ready when the munchies hit.
