For full-time office employees, it may just be the little things that make a big difference. According to a new survey by grocery-delivery service Peapod, happiness levels are higher for those who receive free food in the workplace. 

Among employees whose offices provide free snacks or beverages, most of those who say their office cupboards and fridge are always nicely stocked report being extremely or very happy with their current job (66%).  
And it's not just any food. Employees value healthy options with 83% agreeing "having healthy and fresh snack options (e.g., fruit, vegetables, yogurt, low-calorie snacks) provided in the workplace is a huge perk."
