This, Not That: HEALTHY Office Snacks to Order for the Breakroom

This, Not That: HEALTHY Office Snacks to Order for the Breakroom

Fresh, whole foods versus processed food.


Individual Microwaveable Oatmeal Packets:
The Quaker oatmeal you grew up with remains a hearty kitchen staple. If you can swing it, get the unflavored packets of oatmeal for the office, and put out options for people to dress them up. Fruit, cinnamon, nutmug, honey, Splenda, maple syrup and nuts are delicious and really healthy ways to create your own oatmeal flavors. We like to get the Pumpkin Spice mix from the grocery store for our kitchen’s oatmeal. If you can’t give people these options, then the flavored kind is still okay. If possible, buy the whole-grain, high fiber or low sugar variety like Quaker’s Simple Harvest. Oatmeal is also Heart-Healthy as the soluble fiber and zero milligrams of cholesterol help keep your arteries clear to run your ticker.

Oatmeal Cookies: Oatmeal cookies usually have more fiber than a chocolate chip cookie – a measly 1 g more. But the sugar, fat, sodium and cholesterol in oatmeal cookies remains as high, and as bad for you, as any other cookie. For example, Grandma’s Homestyle Cookies are so decadent, they give you the nutrition facts for only one cookie while the package contains two cookies. One Oatmeal disc the size of your palm packs 5.5 grams of fat AND gasp a gram of terrible Trans Fat. Top that with 200mg of sodium, and 7 grams of sugar and only 2g of protein and 1 gram of fiber. Yuck!

Other losers: High-sugar Granola Cereals, Pepperidge Farm Soft Oatmeal Cookies, Oreos
