At AAA Business Supplies and Interiors, we understand the challenges of maintaining a healthy diet in the workplace. The constant allure of sugary and trans fat-loaded snacks in the breakroom can make it difficult to stay on track. Beyond day-to-day availability, various factors contribute to unhealthy snacking at work, including stress eating, peer influence, and the perpetual stream of office celebrations with tempting, often less-than-healthy, free food.

To help your employees make better snack choices, we consulted with health experts—nutritionists, dietitians, fitness coaches, doctors, and healthy lifestyle bloggers. We posed a straightforward question: What are your favorite healthy snacks for the office, and why?

The consensus among experts is clear: the key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle at work is having wholesome options readily available. So, rather than succumbing to the allure of unhealthy treats during stressful moments or office celebrations, we encourage our employees to reach for the good stuff.
