It’s true that, when we’re stuck in the office for 9 hours straight, we tend to gravitate towards eating unhealthy food we hide in our caddies or skipping meals altogether just to get work done. Change that habit by stocking up on these healthy snacks instead!
Take Root Kale chips
Take Root might have been the first to have made eating dried kale chips cool in Manila. With their variety of flavors, you’ll be addicted to the crunch, the taste, and the nutritional goodness of Take Root’s Kale Chips. Our favorite is definitely the Vegan Cheeze flavor!
Honest Junk Super Gummies
Honest Junk proudly promotes healthy snacking for all those times during the day when you’re craving for something to munch on. They’ve got cookies and cheese barks, but what they’re known best for is their Super Gummies! It’s got all the sweet taste of candy without the guilt. Try their assortment of flavors: mango, calamansi, mandarin, and more!
Earth Desserts Vegan Brownie Brittle
If it’s vegan treats you’re after, Earth Desserts has a delicious smorgasbord of them, from cookies and brownies to doughnuts and loaves, which you can try at weekend markets and their stockists. But for weekday merienda, their Vegan Brownie Brittle is a must-have. Made dairy-free, egg-free, and preservative-free, this snack is something you’ll want to keep a jar of all day, every day!

When it comes to healthy snacking, fresh fruits are always the best thing to reach for. JustFruit offers something even more unique with just the same nutritional content: freeze dried fruits! Chew on them like regular chips and rest easy knowing you’re not adding unnecessary junk in your system! Our favorite is Just Banana, which can be made even yummier with all-natural peanut butter or organic chocolate!
