Craving A Late Day Snack At Work?

“Desk Nibbles” is a subscription service targeting offices in Ottawa that are interested in receiving regular deliveries of healthy snacks. The idea behind the service comes from two Carleton University students who are on a mission to eliminate office ‘hanger’. Hanger is described in the Urban Dictionary as “A lethal combination of hunger and anger, the result of waiting so long to eat that your blood sugar drops to dangerously low levels, impairing both your mood and your judgment.” The word lethal might be a little over the top, but a blood sugar imbalance is a real thing… and it can certainly affect your mood.

Emil Aite, a fourth-year computer science student and founder of Desk Nibbles says “We want to show businesses how effective snacking is in the workplace and how great it is for employee morale and saving time and money.” Several monthly delivery plans are available, along with a customizable selection of fruit, granola bars, drinks, sweets, yogurts and nuts. Great idea! If you want to find out more, check out the website:
