8 Must-Have Snacks for Every Office

Did you know? FEED Nutrition Consulting offers much more than private consultations including pantry rehabs, grocery store tours, speaking engagements, and most recently, corporate wellness. We believe health and nutrition extends well beyond the home and love helping our corporate clients create a healthier workplace for every employee.

From workshops and group sessions to individualized, on-site counseling, FEED RDs are available to come to your workplace for any nutrition needs. One of the easiest ways to create a healthier workplace begins with the break room. Notorious for vending machines, candy and sweets, break rooms are often the office hub for snacking and socializing. Instead of the typical chips and soda, check out our FEED-approved office snacks and perhaps consider cultivating a healthier workplace for you and your co-workers!

RXBAR

You’ll find plenty of these real food bars in our own FEED offices! These are a favorite for many reasons, including the simple ingredient list, high protein and fiber content. These bars are perfectly portioned and satisfyingly delicious.

Biena Roasted Chickpeas

Looking for a salty crunch? These roasted chickpeas are the perfect choice with classic flavors like Ranch, BBQ and Sour Cream, we promise you won’t miss the chips! Plus, you’ll enjoy a snack rich in plant-based protein and belly-filling fiber.

Single Serve Nuts

Nuts are a delicious and heart healthy snack, but for many, portion control can be a problem. Since nuts are both nutrient-dense and calorie-dense, proper portions are key. We love the idea of single serve packs to satiate that craving in a calorie-controlled way.

Freeze Dried or Fresh Fruit

Fruit is a fan-favorite and, as nature’s candy, it is easy to see why. While fresh fruit is always a great idea, if you are looking for something a bit more interesting, consider freeze dried fruit, which has no added sugar and lasts much longer than its perishable counterparts.

Popcorn

Skip the pretzels and try popcorn instead to satisfy the need for a crunchy snack. Popcorn is a high fiber, whole grain and low calorie snack. Look for single serve bags to keep snacks fresh and convenient.

Crudite Platter

Have access to a refrigerator? Try a crudite platter to keep throughout each week. Veggies are always our #1 choice for snacking, and when they are cleaned, cut and ready to eat, we are much more likely to reach for them. Give it a try to increase fiber and micronutrients during snack time.

Beet Chips or JicaChips

Similar to freeze dried fruit, freeze dried veggie chips are a FEED favorite for keeping vegetables fun! Made with simple ingredients, these chips satisfy your snacky side, but are made from only vegetables and seasoning — no frying needed!

Single Serve Nut Butter Packs

We all love nut butter, but just like whole nuts, portion size is important. We love these single serve nut butter packs for on-the-go snacking. They are perfect for spreading on whole grain crackers, apples or celery.
