CDC’s Food Service Guidelines: Promoting Health and Sustainability in Worksites
Americans typically spend more time at work than at home. Food options available to them during work hours can help employees shape into more healthful workers, or contribute to greater health care costs for employers, depending on the options available. Healthful food options in the workplace can positively affect an employer’s bottom line by improving employee health, morale, and absenteeism.
