Optimum Intake can tailor design presentations to suit your individual health / workplace requirements. Good Health is Good Business
Food choices for work are often seen as an after-thought, or even a hindrance. Given that the average full-time worker could spend almost half their day, 5 days a week preparing for, travelling to and from or being at work, common sense would suggest that this is where they should be receiving half of their dietary requirements. Poor nutrition leads to poor health, bringing on a lack of energy, strength and coordination. In the workplace this translates to reduced productivity, morale and greater time lost to illness or injury.
What is the cost of poor food choices?
Poor diet on the job is costing countries around the world up to 20 per cent in lost productivity, either due to malnutrition that plagues some one billion people in developing countries or the excess weight and obesity afflicting an equal number mostly in industrialised economies. Promoting healthy lifestyle choices within the workplace has been shown to result in improvements in diet and physical activity which in turn relates to increased morale, increased productivity and reduced sick days.
