Ever catch yourself fighting back a yawn after lunch? We all know the familiar signs of the afternoon slump.

As your focus and concentration fades and your mind starts to wander from the task at hand, it can be a struggle to boost your energy levels back up and get back to being productive.

Taking a break to enjoy an afternoon treat can be just what you need to beat the struggle. When you’re looking for your post-lunch fix, it’s important to fuel your body with nutritious treats to help you avoid the ‘crash and burn’.If you find yourself falling into a humdrum afternoon, we’ve got you covered with these healthier snacks.

Chocolate Hit

Try out the newly launched KitKat Chocolatory Sublime Incoa (RRP $5.00) for all the chocolatey taste without the guilt. Using cacao pulp to naturally sweeten the chocolate, this tasty treat is the perfect chocolate fix for choc-lovers looking for a healthier snack alternative at work.

Protein Balls

These super-powered balls of goodness are a delicious and wholesome way to help you get through the afternoon slump. Unlike sugary sweets, Bounce Natural Protein Balls (Box of 12 – RRP $36.00) are healthier snacks packed with healthy fats and antioxidant micronutrients to help keep you energized all day.


A serving of Greek yoghurt , such as Chobani No Fat Yoghurt (RRP $7.00), can pack a real punch of protein to help tide you over the afternoon slump. As protein takes longer to digest, you’ll curb your cravings and bring back focus.

Trail Mix

Get creative and prep yourself the perfect combo with a DIY snack mix. Assorted nuts, dried fruits, and dark chocolate chips make a great addition to a classic trail mix! Try Absolute Organic Trail Mix (RRP $10.50) – it’as yum!


With no added oil, high in fiber, and low in fat and sugar, Air-popped Popcorn (RRP $1.50) is a great way to graze guilt-free throughout the afternoon.

Next time the post-lunch slump hits, try snacking on these healthier snacks to get back on track and power through your afternoon.

  • I usually have a snack mid afternoon. I try to stick to nuts but sometimes it’s fruit loaf. Nothing too sweet and fancy. It keeps up the energy levels.


  • I love nutbars but they are high in sugar.


  • Great ideas, I really struggle with snacking on the right things!


  • I’m bad I get whatever is in the cupboard and most of the time it will be chips or lollies!


  • I always have some tasty cheese and crackers- seems to do the trick.


  • I love a handful of dried apricots for an afternoon snack.


  • Almonds or Pistachios!


  • apple slices with peanut butter or hommus


  • I love tomato’s and raw mushrooms with dukkah


  • I try and have something with protein in as they fill me up a bit more


  • Nuts and protein balls


  • Protein balls are great and so filling


  • I generally go for nuts, an apple, some pepitas, roasted chickpeas…


  • The kitKat chocolate seems worth a try. And I do like popcorn, but prefer it with butter, salt, or icing sugar, so that prob won’t work for me


  • Sometimes, when you hit that slump, the only thing that will satisfy it is sweet or greased foods. But I’ll happily try these ones above to avoid the ones I mentioned
