The very best subscription boxes for healthy desk snacking
LIFEBOX WOMEN’S HEALTH BOX
The Women’s Health Box is jam-packed with raw chocolate, nuts, granola and protein balls; all delicious. It also won bonus points for its range of herbal teas, the turmeric latte and the protein shake. Each box has a different theme each month so you’ll enjoy a wide range of healthy snacks, and although our box is aimed at women, it went down well with everyone in the office.

Packed full of all-vegan and natural goodies, SourcedBox introduced us to a host of treats we’d not tried before. We especially enjoyed the coconut sesame bites and the coconut chocolate jerky; the perfect post-lunch pick-me-ups. There was also a good selection of savoury bites, ideal for on-the-go handbag snacks.

This box is a treasure trove with 20 different products, including fruit and nut mix, Pip & Nut squeezy packs, olives, coconut crisps and raw vegan chocolate. We loved the variety of sweet and savoury in this box, and with so many products it lasted for ages. Serious snackers can have this one delivered weekly if they so choose.

THE GOODNESS PROJECT
The Goodness Project delivers eight to 10 thoughtfully chosen, wholesome treats each month and the promise that you will never receive the same thing twice. Most products are full size which is sure to last you the entire month; for example our tub of munchy seeds is still going strong. We devoured a pack of gluten-free coconut cookies and enjoyed the chia seed bars as pre-workout snacks. The pretty packaging makes it the perfect gift, providing you don’t get stuck in first.
