The breakroom is a place when your employees can re-charge throughout the day. Even if they don’t spend a significant amount of time in that room, stocking the breakroom with snacks for your employees is one way you can empower their healthy eating decisions during the workday. Help employees to make nutritious choices by making the following readily available in your office:
While buying a bunch of chips and cookies might be a fun treat, fueling your body with junk food is not a healthy alternative when you don’t have time to grab lunch. Stock your breakroom with healthy packaged snacks like nuts, granola bars or oatmeal to combat the midafternoon slump.
Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
Making fresh fruits and vegetables readily available will help employees to make healthy snacking choices throughout the day. Keeney’s uses local, woman-owned business, Third Leaf NW, to have apples, carrots and hummus delivered to our breakroom each week.
Hydrating with water should be the easy choice at work. Be sure to have a water cooler that works and cups or water bottles on hand for the team to use. You could also invest in an ice maker or flavor packets to make water a more appealing choice.
By providing employees with healthy snack choices, you help them to make positive choices and show you care about their well-being. Contact the Keeney’s team today for more ideas on creating a healthy breakroom at your office today!
