Healthy Snacking at Work

Make Your Munching Count during Break Time
-- By Becky Hand, Licensed and Registered Dietician

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.
