Healthy Eating at Work

Why is healthy eating at work important?

Good nutrition is a key to well-being. When you are well nourished and healthy you can be productive in your workplace. Many adults spend a lot of time at work, eating snacks and at least one meal during the workday. Therefore, what you eat at work matters.

How to make healthy choices at work

  • Plan ahead
  • Keep healthy options available
  • Choose healthier menu items
  • Choose healthy beverage options
    • Water (plain, carbonated or naturally flavoured)
    • Unsweetened tea and coffee
  • Take time to eat
  • Be mindful of your schedule
    • Shift work can impact your eating and sleeping patterns and make it difficult to make healthy food choices. Think about your work schedule and plan when you can have regular meals and snacks throughout the day.

Workplaces are also encouraged to promote healthy eating, physical activity and overall wellbeing to support the health of all employees. You can advocate for your workplace to offer healthy choices at cafeterias, canteens, meetings and other events.
