Forty-seven percent of employees say office snack options keep them from eating healthily, according to a survey of 500 cubicle dwellers by the online grocery store Peapod.
To avoid the vending-machine munchies, stock your desk with durable fruits such as apples, oranges, bananas, pears, kiwis, peaches, and nectarines, says Lona Sandonm, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association.
Or go with veggies that don’t need to be refrigerated: avocados, grape or cherry tomatoes, peppers, and sugar snap peas.
Here’s what else people said about eating healthily during the 9 to 5:
63 percent think eating healthily at work is a challenge
36 percent say their company provides access to fruits and vegetables
35 percent say their company provides access to candy
28 percent are satisfied with the healthy snack options at work
