Healthy Eating in the Workplace Improves Employee Engagement

Posted by Jeca Team on

When it comes down to the simple biology of a workplace, there’s nothing that affects performance as much as nutrition. Indeed, there is pretty much no part of your life that is not impacted by how you choose to fuel your body.

By offering healthy food options at your workplace, you are giving your employees and colleagues the fuel to be happier, switched on and productive. Our brains run on glucose, and our ability to concentrate and focus starts with a proper supply of complex carbohydrates. We at Jeca understand the importance of offering slow-release, low-glycemic whole grains instead of simple carbs (like refined sugars). Eat well and your employees will feel mentally alert throughout the day.

Did you know that whole grains can actually boost your mood by helping deliver tryptophan to your brain? Tryptophan is the building block of serotonin, one of the brain’s “feel good” chemicals, so the more your brain has, the more serotonin it will produce. Refined sugars, on the other hand, contribute to focus- and mood-derailing crashes.

Studies have also suggested that employees are getting a third or more of their total caloric intake in the form of snacks. On top of that, no meal category affects one’s overall eating habits like snacking. So creating better snack habits not only impacts our mood at work, it also improves our overall health and nutrition.

So why not show your colleagues you care and introduce better eating options at your office today?!
