SMART SNACKING

Snacks can fit into a healthy eating plan and provide an energy boost between meals, if they’re planned right. Choosing nutritious foods from the food groups can help increase variety and reduce sources of empty calories and added sugar.

Download this tool from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for tips on how to snack and healthy ideas for what to snack on.

HEALTH TIPS

Creating a healthy at home work environment

  • Keep a schedule not only for work but breaks to recharge throughout the day

  • Stay active by getting up and walking once an hour to the bathroom or for a drink of water. Or, try some chair squats or an under desk ergometer to pedal while you work.

  • Eat at normal times and avoid eating all day because food is readily available. 

Avoiding work from home weight gain

  • Plan your lunch and snacks as you would if you were going to the office

  • Take a lunch break and avoid eating at your desk and maintain mindful eating

  • Go for a walk after eating your lunch (while maintaining social distancing)

Planning your work, exercise, and meal routines will help you stay on track

with your health and wellness goals while working from home!
