A new year brings new trends and mindsets to offices throughout the New York metro area. With the holiday season in the rearview, companies are looking forward to creating a welcoming experience for their employees in the office. One way to build on that experience is by providing easy-to-grab snacks in the break room.
Studies show that small, nutrient-heavy portions of food throughout the day keep us fueled and more focused throughout the work day. By providing an assortment of healthy snacks in your office break room, your team has easy access to delicious ways to improve their well-being and productivity.
This is especially important now, as people are taking notice of the impact their food choices have on their physical health. Stocking better-for-you snacks and beverages is an investment in your employees’ well-being that shows you understand this is important to them. It’s a measure that creates a positive impact on morale, and boosts your team’s mood and performance—which ultimately has a positive impact on your bottom line.
Here are five of the top trending healthy snacks that are a great fit for your office break room this year.
