Eating "childish" snacks at the desk?
As title states, I have recently taken up snacking at my desk. Picked up a workout routine and am just hungrier, plus I find I can stay more engaged.
My coworkers and specifically my VP has started giving me hell about the snacks I choose to eat though. Every time he walks by or even just encounters me, he says something along the lines of "ohohoh does baby need a snack" or "maybe we can get you some cheerios next, or are you still too little". A bunch of my other coworkers and people have started commenting. I don't mind a ton but want to gain perspective on is this really weird? I don't really care with my current position since it's very clearly a joke, i'll just joke back and it's fine. Plus I know I produce a decent deliverable, and already have signed exit offer, but will it fuck me at my next role if i eat like this?
Typical snacks include: pretzels, baby carrots, Goldfish crackers, Teddy Grahams, celery sticks, apple slices, Cheez-Its, fruit snacks, and certain dry cereals (i like cookie crisp and reeses puffs a lot)
I guess these foods are considered childish, but i didn't know there was an age limit on them? it just seems like normal food to me. it's light and not messy so it's easy to snack on as i type, and they're not super high in calories either. Plus, my lunches are normal just usually either a carryout bowl or I'll bring a pasta or sandwich from home.
