Sitting down at a desk or rushing off to meetings can mean you tend to grab food on the go or turn to quick sugary snacks to help combat the hunger pangs and a good routine is often hard to maintain. To help guide you through the daily 9 to 5, we've picked out some of the best healthy nibbles to snack on:

 

Popcorn

Arguably the king of snacks, popcorn is a treat which can be enjoyed at any point throughout the working day.

Not just go-back-for-more tasty, popcorn is surprisingly nutritious compared to alternative savoury snacks, made with 100% whole grains and a source of fibre.

 

Sliced vegetable sticks

A quick and easy snack to prepare, slicing up carrots, peppers, cucumbers, celery and more will provide a healthy, colourful office snack and something you don't have to feel guilty about grazing on!

For a pleasant twist, dip your sticks of assorted vegetables into a flavoursome pot of hummus.

 

Assorted nuts

Pack your snack-ready lunchbox with a different variety of nuts, for a balanced daytime set of treats.

Almonds for calcium and vitamin E, cashews for iron and protein, chestnuts for fibre and pecans for sweetness can all be added to create your own nutty granola. Alternatively, just mix them all together and have them to hand to grab when you want a snack.

 

Rice crackers

Rice crackers are a tasty, low-fat snack which aren't as dull as most people think. Picking a flavoured rice cracker means you can mix things up, with varieties including Blueberry, Salt 'n' Vinegar or a sneaky layer of dark chocolate. 

Rich in both carbohydrates and fibre, these savoury treats are difficult to put down once you've picked them up.

 

Dark chocolate

A surprising but worthy entry is dark chocolate, and the more cocoa the better when it comes to these snacks for the office.

Often having less added sugar and fat than its milk counterparts, dark chocolate bars can be eaten whole, or added into other nutritional snacks such as yoghurts, nuts or fruit.
