Office Snacking

Ever been typing away at your desk and you pull out, well something from you draw and have a munch? Here are some simple steps to improve your healthy snacking habits at work.

Have a plan for when there is no plan

Keep some non-perishable snacks on hand at work for those days when you’re looking for something small. This can stop you from grabbing something from the vending machine which may not be a healthy choice.

Some examples can include

  • small packets of unsalted nuts
  • popcorn
  • roasted chickpeas
  • small tins of tuna
  • wholegrain crackers

Drink lots of water

You may be feeling like you want a snack but you could be dehydrated. Have a glass of water if you feel like you’re hungry and wait a while before deciding if you are hungry.

Limit coffee and caffeinated beverages

Drinking excess caffeine can lead to slumps in energy levels and have you looking for a quick energy boost. This can lead to an impulsive sweet snack later in the day.

Also, if you’re someone who has their coffee with added sugar, syrups and milk, drinking multiple per day can mean drinking excess kilojoules and therefore lead to weight gain.

Are you looking for a break?

If you are getting tired and need a moment to regroup, many people use taking a snack break as an opportunity to take a moment away from the desk. Try instead of getting in the habit of taking a quick walk around the building to refocus your energy without having excess snacking.
