Staying full all day at work is no easy task. There's an awful lot of time between breakfast, lunch and dinner, especially when you spend most of your working day sitting at your desk daydreaming about your next meal.

When the hunger pangs hit it can be very tempting to head straight to the office vending machine and buy yourself a cheeky bag of crisps or a huge bar of chocolate (guilty!).

But instead of eating something that will only keep your tummy happy for five minutes, why not try some of these handy and filling desk snacks instead?

We guarantee that they will tide you over until home time.

Almonds

Keep a small stash of almonds at your desk so you can munch on them anytime you feel a little bit peckish. They are a great healthy snack packed full of fibre, protein and magnesium. Plus they are just so damn addictive.

Veg and hummus

The perfect combination! A little pot of hummus can go a long way when you're feeling the 3pm slump. It's packed full of protein so it will help keep hunger at bay. Add some carrots and you're on to a winner

Apple and peanut butter

It's so simple but so tasty. Keep a jar of peanut butter in the press at work for afternoon snack emergencies. It's healthy, filling and so easy to make. What's not to love?

Air popped popcorn

Popcorn is a great alternative for crisps, especially if you go for the low salt variety. It's easy to eat while you work and it will also fill you up quickly. It's not just for the cinema, dontcha know.
