    tji-eat-healthyForty-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.

    36 percent say their company provides access to fruits and vegetables
