10 Healthy Office Snack Ideas to Boost Energy and Productivity in the Office

10 Healthy Office Snack Ideas to Boost Energy and Productivity in the Office

The mood is low, stomachs are rumbling and there’s still half of the working day left. Sound familiar?


Many businesses across the country aren’t sure how to sustain their employees through the use of correct nutrition. The following blog highlights the importance of sustainable snacks and offers ten of the best examples to explore today.

Choosing The Right Office Fuel

The best way to ensure all employees are productive during the working day is to keep them sustained with healthy and fuelling foods. This choice of corporate catering is essential to getting the most out of the day.

Employees will tend to reach for convenient and cheaper food options such as fast food and those full of sugar and empty calories. As a result, they will see a short boost followed by a tired and unproductive mood. Providing them with healthier options will guarantee a sustained and satisfied mood for the rest of the day. 


Below are ten choices to consider having on hand for employees to munch on to ensure the highest levels of productivity and positive moods.

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Fresh fruit and vegetables go without saying. The amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants you can get from a generous portion of fruit and vegetables is incredible. Couple this with the fact that they are low in calories and high in fibre, making for a brilliant addition to a balanced diet, helping to leave you full and satisfied. 

Nuts and Seeds

Nuts and seeds are also a staple for a greater intake of healthy fats and added protein and fibre.


The consumption of nuts and seeds can help sustain your energy levels throughout the day and keep them stable for hours afterwards. The best variety to start with is almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds; you can then build a larger choice of nuts and seeds from this.

Greek Yoghurt

Greek yoghurt is high in protein and calcium, both of which are ideal choices for not only boosting energy but also improving overall health. 


Greek yoghurt also contains a variety of probiotics which are key to supporting a healthy gut and immune system - a brilliant outcome for a small office snack!

Dark Chocolate

You may read chocolate and think, ‘how is this a healthy office snack?’ but dark chocolate is different. 


When eaten in moderation, dark chocolate can have several benefits to both your health and mood, including an improvement in focus. It is a sweet treat that can help to curb cravings for unhealthy foods that are guaranteed to bring your mood right back down again.

Energy Bars

Energy bars, as suggested by their name, are designed to boost energy while on the go, specifically bars made from whole ingredients such as nuts, seeds and dried fruit. 


These bars are an excellent source of fibre and protein, especially those with no added sugary syrups or preservatives. 


Popcorn is a light and airy snack that’s lacking in calories but packed with fibre. It’s a healthy option that can help to curb those unwanted cravings for unhealthy snacks.

Hard-Boiled Eggs

Hard-boiled eggs are an excellent choice for packing in protein and healthy fats. They are extremely easy to prepare and are small snacks that you can grab for when you are on the go, making them the perfect office snack. 

Hummus and Veggies

Hummus and vegetables are a great source of protein and fiber. For a snack so little in calories but so large in flavours and variations, hummus and veggies make for a satisfying and nourishing snack. 


Any type of jerky is brilliant for curbing those hunger strikes while also offering a great source of protein for employees. Try introducing beef,turkey or even vegetable-based jerky into the office snack options to enhance performance and lift mood. 

Trail Mix

The final choice to consider is the trusty trail mix. Trail mix offers a boost of energy on the go, much like an energy bar.


Usually made from a mixture of nuts, legumes, dried fruits and the occasional chocolate chunk, trail mix adds variety and excitement into a tasty and healthy snack.
