Unhealthy eating at the workplace – an underappreciated problem

More and more people are complaining of stress and time pressure at work, which encourages unhealthy eating. When time is short, we’re more likely to grab unhealthy snacks than fresh, nutritious meals. Coupled with not enough exercise, this has an impact on our health, as numerous studies have proved over the past few years.
Why is a healthy diet so important? Because our body and our brain can only work productively if we eat healthy. A bad diet and eating at irregular times of the day have a lot of negative effects, such as difficulty concentrating, a drop in performance, fatigue and potential weight problems. In the long run, this can cause health issues, resulting in absenteeism and extra costs. However, eating healthy isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Different jobs but also different company locations pose different challenges to people’s daily diet – challenges that they often can’t overcome on their own.
