How about some red/yellow/orange pepper sticks, celery sticks, baby carrots, cucumber sticks, and bring along some dip and containers of hummus? A class I had last fall always involved someone bringing snacks (since the class was 3 hours long), and veggie sticks with a few different dips were always hugely popular. If you feel like there needs to be more than that, add a couple kinds of crackers and a wedge of brie cheese, and everyone will be happy!

If you brought celery, carrots, apples, and other ridiculously crunchy foods to a meeting, I would seriously want to murder you. I hate hate hate loud crunching noises in general, and it makes it soooo hard for everyone else to hear what’s going on. You can’t hear what someone is saying if you are crunching something in your mouth, either.

What about a lovely spread of hummus, tsatziki dip, with tomatoes and broccoli?

Perhaps granola bars or bags of little crackers or cookies (e.g. 100 calorie packs). You can add some fruit in a bag (e.g. cut apple slices) for variety. I prefer pre-packaged snacks over open trays since I’m kind of a germaphobe and it’s still flu season.

I’m assuming there aren’t any people with fruit/nut/gluten allergies.

Muffins? They can be delicious, easy to make, and still relatively healthy if you pick the right recipe. (And quiet to eat!)  I make zucchini bread sometimes and bring it into the office and it’s a huge hit, too.

Peanut butter. Apples.

VOILA! Tasty, protein rich snack. Apples are supposedly as good at keeping you awake as a cup of coffee.

If worried about allergies, yogurt or caramel are good subs.

How about a yummy salad? Maybe some pomegranites and cranberries? Delicious!

I’d go super low effort and get a bag of mixed hand fruit, a bunch of individual sized chips/pretzels, and some cookies.

@crayfish:  I agree with the crunching thing… It would drive me nuts.

Cheese is always good, who doesnt love cheese? Pumperknickle bread with spinach dip?

I would bring cookies or brownies. You could easily make homemade brownies and cut into small 1 inch squares.
