Promoting healthy eating in the workplace

Promoting healthy eating in the workplace can help you to encourage a healthier and more productive workforce. Any organisation, large or small, can take simple actions to promote healthy eating among their staff. From providing fruit bowls, stocking vending machines with healthy foods, sharing healthy recipes on the intranet, to appointing workplace champions. Have a look at  Physical activity, healthy eating and healthier weight: a toolkit for employers for some ideas on how you could support your employees. 

And why not book one of our healthy eating or weight management webinars and workshops? They would be a great addition to your workplace strategy, as they aim to raise employees' awareness of a well-balanced diet and help them to make healthier food choices along with achieving optimal weight.

We also offer Mini Medicals - onsite health checks designed to give employees a better understanding of their health, wellbeing and risks. They can help your employees make lasting and positive lifestyle changes.
