In 2020, Covid-19 sidelined many people when it came to their health. Even before the pandemic, too many companies offered unhealthy snacks as rewards, to celebrate milestones, or just for snacking. As we head back to the office, it will be nearly impossible for employees to avoid unhealthy snacks because they are so readily available. However, now is the perfect opportunity to support their health goals by offering healthy snacks.
5 healthy snacks you can offer in your Los Angeles office
We’ve come up with a list of five healthy snacks to satisfy those cravings but still keep your health goals on track.
Think of the plethora of fruits you can enjoy. Whether they are dried or fresh, fruits are a great source of essential vitamins and minerals and high in fiber. For example, you can enjoy apples with or without almond butter (delish!), blueberries, bananas, oranges, and more. Fruit snacks are refreshing and can satisfy the sweet tooth but are better for you than candy.
Make it a habit to snack on vegetables daily. They are low in calories, fat, sodium, and cholesterol. They also help protect you against certain diseases.

You’ll relish the crunch of carrots, the slight spicy quality of broccoli, and the sweet mild flavor of juicy bell peppers.
