Dried fruits, nuts, fresh fruits, fat free candies (tootsie roll midgees, come to mind!)

Anything refreshing like fresh fruit or chocolate dipped strawberries. Or bring in some cups and a special beverage. Nurses get dehydrated, so a couple big bottles of a fun fruity drink would be great!

Seeing as the others are already bringing sweet stuff, I'd suggest savories. Batman's is a good idea, and you can also consider mini meat pies and sausage rolls.

Anything edible.

Fruit is always delicious. I love little candies that I can stick in my pocket for later. Sweet and chocolate are good, but sometimes too many of them can be too much.

Tzatziki sauce (cucumber and yogurt sauce) with warm, lightly salted and toasted pitas. It's also good as a veggie dip too.

Cold pasta salad with Italian dressing, pepperjack cheese chunks, pepperoni, black olives, etc...

Spinach dip in a Hawaiian bread bowl.

Fresh salsa... or Tabouli

Pizza!

I made little bite sized cucumber sandwiches for my contribution to the nurses that helped me during clinicals. It's pretty easy-get a few loaves of the small pumpernickel bread that you find in the deli section. Mince some peeled cucumbers (take the seeds out) and mince a whole red onion. Open a couple of packets of cream cheese, mix in your veggies, add salt and pepper, and you have a lightly refreshing finger food! I also brought a box of herbal teas to accompany the sandwiches. Got this idea from my Mom...yeah, she was a Brit! We had this snack or a variation of it everyday at 1600.

Something portable and quick and easy to just shove in your face in the .05 seconds you happen to have free as you pass by the lounge is a big hit! Although, a few weeks ago I brought some homemade spinach dip to work and I think I gained some popularity points!

I really like the pasta salad and cucumber sandwich ideas. Mini meat pies would be yummy too. People tend to bring sweet so a few savory things would be so welcome.

Baked tortilla chips and salsa. Bean dip could be nice for some protein. Chips and salsa is often a big hit. Hummus and pitas chips could be fun too. Veggie and dip is nice as well. Truth is people will eat what you put in front of them. lol

Oh yes, bean dip is the GREATEST! But it would also be prudent to have some Beano as a side dish. Just sayin...
