Healthy Nutrition Program

Improve Diet, Improve Staff Morale

Healthy and nutritious food is the cornerstone of good health.  In the age of self-help book, Google, and Dr. Oz, it can become difficult to navigate the ins and outs of healthy eating.  Good nutrition is more than just a fad diet, avoiding a bad food, or eating a lot of a good food.  Good nutrition is all about balance – balanced nutrients, balanced plate-sizes, balanced eating schedules, and balancing treats.  A balanced diet lays the groundwork for every system, organ, and cell in your body to be healthier and perform at it’s best.  Food is the best medicine and the best prevention.

A healthy balanced diet is vital in the prevention and treatment of a wide assortment of diseases including as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, obesity, digestive conditions, skin conditions, allergies, cancer, mood disorders, etc. This will not only reduce organizational costs for medical coverage, disability and extended sick leave, but good eating habits tend to extend to the whole family, reducing absences for sick children.

Good nutrition will not only help your employees maintain a healthy body weight, but will impact energy levels, concentration and focus, mood, body aches and pains, and much more.  But most importantly, eating well will make your employees feel great – a contagious feeling that will spread from one desk to another, across all departments, and resulting in a huge boost to staff morale and an overall “good place to work” feel that both employees, and visitors can experience.
