I need some snack/meal ideas for myself in my very fast paced work environment. Help me take my non-healthy current solutions and make them better!

I recently started a high energy, fast paced job riding in a delivery truck. I'm sprinting at many of the stops, and the stops are constant. Between stops I need to look up information on the fly, which requires both hands. All this work makes me hungry, and lunch breaks are highly desirable to avoid. Besides, I don't really like lunch.
What I do like are snacks. Especially late morning to early afternoon. Which is when work is the craziest. So I need to find snacks I can grab quick and stuff in my mouth while I am riding between stops. I have found those cheesy crackers that come in six packs are handy. Poptarts are decent too. Except for the fact that both are terribly unhealthy. I want healthier, and maybe more substantial, alternatives. I'm thinking of trying jerky. Or cheese sticks would be decent. Maybe nuts/trail mix(Though that would be hard to make sure it doesn't spill everywhere).
Hivemind, do you have any yummy and/or suitable ideas?
