Healthy Snacking in the Workplace
Offering healthy snack food alternatives is an easy way to start showing your organization's commitment to Workplace Wellness.
Keep records to see that they are actually being used. Make sure the supply is fresh, clean, and attractively presented. If necessary, charge a fair price, but remember that the continued wellness of your employees impacts morale and your bottom line.
Healthy Snacking Tips
Some Healthy Snack Choices
A well balanced diet of fruits and vegetables is an important step to healthy lifestyle. They contain vitamins, minerals, and fibre, which help to reduce your risk of obesity and high blood pressure.
Nutritionists recommend eating between 5 and 9 portions per day, where a "portion" is considered to be a half-cup of the cut fruit or vegetable. The exception is leafy greens, which require a full cup to be considered an entire portion.
We have provided printable scorecards to help you keep track of how many minutes you are putting in each day.
