Free your office snacks with Snack Boxes, the easy way to receive a curated variety of healthy office snacks that don’t suck on a budget that fits your business.
Healthy Vending Machines?
The average American spends 90,000 hours at work over their lifetime. And since about 25% of our daily total calorie intake is via snacks, the snacks we consume at work have a major impact on our overall health. So why are “healthy” snack machines stocked with high sugar snacks to avoid? A 2011 study of U.S. schools found a strong correlation between the health of the snacks in school vending machines and the overall health of students. It makes sense; we eat what’s available to us, and if it’s easier to reach for soda instead of healthy juice, we will. While vending machine treats may cost little, the cost to our health is huge.
Snacks = Energy
Starting your day with foods like high-fiber whole grains and fruits has been proven to enhance short-term memory and attention span, both critical factors at work. Nuts, seeds, and chocolate are rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E, which has been linked to slowing cognitive decline. Being properly fueled work means you’re ready and energized to take on the day.
