Snack Trends

 

A huge trend in snack foods are healthier breakroom snacks. This includes a larger focus on natural ingredients, less processed products, and snacks that focus more on specific dietary needs such as sugar-free or gluten-free ingredients. According to from Snacknation, Jessica Nowak of In Wealth and Health states that nuts are a great healthy snack because they are low in carbohydrates, high in protein, and contain healthy fats, all of which are nutritious. Some other healthy snack ideas may include:

  • Nutritional bars
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Dried fruits and vegetables
  • Nuts
  • Popcorn
  • Water
  • Juice

 

How to choose what snacks to stock?

 

Having snack foods available is a low-cost perk to offer your employees. It is also important to get your team’s input on which kind of snacks they would like to have around the workplace. Below are a few ways to get your team involved in your purchasing choices:

  • Have a suggestion box
  • Rotate who is in charge of selecting snacks for the week or month to have a consistently fresh snack selection
  • Inquire if anyone has any health, allergy, or dietary restrictions, provided if employees are comfortable with these questioning

 

With any organization, one must also consider if any purchase is cost-effective for the company. Buying in bulk has its benefits because suppliers are eager to move product and will often provide discounts on larger orders. A larger order also means that purchases are made less frequently, which can cut down on shipping costs. In addition, stores that specialize in a specific type of product will typically have a larger amount of suppliers to choose from, so you can purchase everything you need from one source. This vendor relationship can allow you to negotiate for better costs and help you find the best snacks for your breakroom selection.
