Offering healthy snacks to employees is a great way to help nourish culture and keep employees happy. But it can also help people work smarter by improving cognitive function. A recent article on the subject from Allwork.Space caught our attention, especially since it features many of the foods we offer through our healthy snack and fruit delivery service to Boston-area companies. Among them…

Oranges and strawberries help boost energy levels because they’re rich in coenzyme Q10, which your body needs for the last steps of energy production. We offer oranges and strawberries — and lots of other kinds of fruit — through our fruit delivery service to Boston-area offices.

Pistachios also boost energy levels and improve brain function. Employees love our Eden Foods Shelled Pistachios.

Chia seeds are loaded DHA, a type of omega 3, which research has shown to improve cognitive function. Omega 3’s help maintain healthy brain cell membranes. Our Health Warrior Chia Bars are — no surprise — loaded with chia seeds.

Lentils are loaded with fiber, which is key to brain function, and a B vitamin called folate which boosts brain power. Over the summer, we visited a food show in New York City (we’re always on the hunt for great new products for our corporate clients) and discovered an awesome baked lentil chip called Plentils Dill and Sour Cream chips.

Oatmeal is also rich in fiber and nutrients. The fiber can also help you feel full for a good long time, so you won’t want to reach for another snack in ten minutes. Our clients especially enjoy Earnest Eats Superfood Oatmeal and Oatmega bars.

Poultry contains the amino acid called L-tyrosine, which helps produce dopamine, which can improves mental alertness and memory. Turkey is also loaded with protein, which can help keep neurotransmitters in the brain fire on all cylinders. We sell a lot of turkey jerky to our corporate clients, including Shelton’s and Krave Lemon Garlic.

Cocoa not only improves cognitive function, verbal fluency, and blood flow to the brain but it has a bit of caffeine to boost energy levels. We sell quite a few products containing dark chocolate including Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups and Skinny Dipped Chocolate Covered Almonds. For a bigger chocolate kick, our clients go for Chocolove bars, which come in a variety of great flavors.

Of course, as part of our healthy snack and fruit delivery service to companies in place like Boston, Cambridge, Burlington, Waltham and beyond, we offer a vast array of healthy delicious products. You can see many of them here. And if you’re ready to have healthier, happier employees, please contact us to learn more.
