The Perfect Snacks To Boost Your Productivity At Work

By Emily Kelley | October 1, 2018 | Productivity


There is no worse feeling than the 3pm slump. The entire office is listless, desperate for a way to keep up the energy level without wasting too much time.

Look no further! A study conducted by Staples found that snack runs outside of the office (along with coffee runs) accounts for 2.4 billion hours of lost productivity each year.

By stocking your office with snacks, you can help build your way to a more productive and more engaged environment in no time.

Check out these snacks to boost productivity and morale in your office.





Energy bars are the perfect answer to skipping breakfast, working through your lunch break, or just needing a boost of energy through the day.

However, not all energy bars are made the same. Some can include more than 20 grams of sugar and 350 calories per bar, but KIND is different.

Their Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt bar is gluten free, has only 5g of sugar, and has 0g trans fat. It is the perfect guilt-free snack that tastes as great as it looks.

You know how some protein bars are messy and crumble all over your desk, or are so rock solid that you worry about breaking your tooth?

KIND bars are the perfect consistency of crunchy and chewy, and we promise that you’ll love these delicious snacks as much as we do.




No snack list would be complete without including at least one variety of America’s favorite snack- popcorn.

That’s right, popcorn’s not just for the movies anymore, and it happens to be a perfect snack to boost productivity and keep energy levels up throughout the day.

A bag of Original Skinny Pop Popped Popcorn contains no artificial flavors, no traces of tree nuts or peanuts (for a peanut-free office), and no trans fat. Despite all of these “no’s”, Skinny Pop has a lot of reasons to say “yes” including less carbs than a bag of chips, low sodium, and a light and delicious taste.

Try it out for yourself, and see why Skinny Pop is the preferred snack of athletes, parents, and now productive offices!







Looking for something with a little crunch to get you through the day? Look no further than our favorite chip alternative, Hippeas!

These chickpea puff snacks provide you with the perfect one-two punch of carbs and protein, giving you the sustainable energy you need to help you power through your next meeting.

With ingredients that you can pronounce and five fun, bold flavors to choose from, you can’t go wrong with this sustainable snack for the “modern hippie”.



Chex Mix



Why not bring everyone’s favorite party snack to the office? Shockingly, Chex Mix is one of the healthiest snacks you can choose for its low calorie content and high nutritional value.

A bag of traditional Chex Mix provides a shocking amount of nutrients to fuel your day and boost your productivity, including 5% of your daily dietary fiber, 4% of your daily iron, and 0g trans fat.

Chex Mix snack mix provides the variety of salty snacks you crave in a perfect serving size, perfect for the office and boosting productivity.




Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Bars




We’ve all been there. Your alarm didn’t go off, traffic was a nightmare, and you didn’t have time to eat breakfast before getting to work right on time.

Lucky for you, you don’t have to wait until lunch to eat a breakfast-ready snack.

Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Soft-Baked Cereal Bars are the perfect breakfast snacks for the busy body who does it all.

One serving contains 6% of your daily dietary fiber, 20% of your daily calcium, and only around 120 calories.

Nothing says “breakfast” like a sweet, delicious pastry packed with nutrients.

Pro Tip: Remove your Cereal Bar from its packaging and heat in the microwave for 10 seconds for a bakery experience, right from your office!


Lance Crackers




Ah yes, the office staple for decades. There is a reason why every vending machine in the country features these snacks- they provide sustainable energy with quick, easy crackers that you can eat anywhere!

Our favorite is the classic Toast Chee Real Peanut Butter Crackers, which satisfies every craving in one bite-sized snack.

Made with real peanut butter, these little snacks are packed with protein, calcium, and iron to help boost your productivity and help you get through those long hours between lunch time and the end of your workday.

This classic snack is sure to be a hit- just be sure to clean up the crumbs before your coworkers wonder why the Lance Crackers are all gone!

Snacking has a bad reputation, but filling your office with healthy snacks can help your employees be more productive and creative with every bite.

Let’s get snacking!
