Recently Popchips carried out a survey to reveal the UK snacking habits.
The survey revealed that the average worker is reaching for the snack cupboard at least twice a day to keep them going. ‘snackered’ workers are tucking into a pick-me-up at 11.30am – and again by 3pm. Over three quarters of Brits agree a snack helps to boost energy levels.
The survey of 2,000 british office workers, commissioned by popchips, found that while 72 per cent of office workers start the day full of energy, it rapidly disappears as the day progresses with many grabbing their first snack at 11.30am. by mid-afternoon respondents admitted suffer another energy slump causing them to reach for a second snack at around 2.55pm.
Top Tips for avoiding the snackered slump:
1. be prepared. have snacks ready for when energy slumps hit.
2. check the small print. looks for snacks that won’t blow your daily calorie intake. at less than 100 calories a pack popchips are an ideal snackered treat!
3. get moving. keep your snacks away from your desk so you go for a walk to pick them up. a quick break from the computer can do wonders!
4. snack tasty. keep healthy yummy snacks accessible. if you deny yourself your favourite snacks, you’ll just need up craving for them and over-doing it. try popcorn, a small packet of nuts and raisins, popchips, olives, a handful of almonds or frozen tubes of fromage-frais.
Popchips are a perfect snacktime treat. I have tried all of the flavours and can honestly say there isn't one that I don't like.
Created in California and now popping in the UK, popchips are a naturally delicious line of popped potato chips. never fried. never baked. popchips are popped with heat and pressure for a snack so crispy and delicious you won’t even notice it’s healthier. The thing I love most about popchips is how strong the flavour is and that the texture isn't too harsh like some crisps. You also don't get that greasy feeling left on your fingers after eating either.
Perfect at 11 o clock and/or 3pm.
I was sent some popchips for the purpose of this post.
