Why promote healthy eating at work?
Poor diet is a significant contributor to Scotland’s poor health record. By positively influencing eating habits in your organisation, you can help to address this.
Eating a healthy, balanced diet can significantly improve your health and wellbeing. It can improve quality of life and reduce the risk of major illnesses such as
- heart disease
- type 2 diabetes
- high blood pressure
If eating habits improve in the workplace this can carry over into the family environment. It can also potentially have further reaching effects on other family members.
Healthier employees will, in turn, benefit your organisation. It can result in reduced sickness absence and increased productivity.
