Work Ready is a new dietitian-led wellness initiative designed to help your workforce stay healthy and well at work.
The food and drink choices we make not only enhance our long term health but also help us feel and function well at work. Eating well during our working life supports us to maintain a healthy weight and stay healthy so that businesses have a reliable workforce who are well enough to do their jobs – and also feel valued, supported and engaged to reach their productive potential.
Food choices influence our mood, energy levels, concentration and even how we deal with stress. They also impact on weight – and maintaining a healthy weight is one of the most important modifiable diet and lifestyle related factors in preventing a range of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease related to hypertension and raised blood lipids, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and depression.
