Think Healthy (And Delicious) Catering For The Holidays
For many people, the mere thought of food for the holidays elicits images of indulgent sweets, multi-course meals and overeating. And that doesn’t just include family dinners or holiday parties; over-indulging for the holidays happens in corporate offices all across America, including right here in Philadelphia.
But that doesn’t have to be the norm. In fact, many offices are choosing to opt into healthier holiday food options for their employees, with healthy catering playing a big role.
Eliminating Unhealthy Holiday Challenges
The holidays can be such a stressful time and healthful eating usually becomes an afterthought. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has dedicated a page on their website that aims to help companies create a healthier workplace during the holidays. The CDC has identified the following challenges when it comes to staying healthy for the holidays:
- Too much temptation. With sweets and candies popping up in the break room, it can be hard for even the most conscientious eaters to say “no” all the time. Although employers might think they’re treating their employees by providing them with holiday sweets, all the sugar can actually have a negative effect on productivity.
- Feeling overwhelmed. Between holiday parties both inside and outside of the office, gift swaps, and family responsibilities, the demands on an employee’s time and wallet can become overwhelming. The added stress can lead to making unhealthy eating choices, especially if there are extra sweets lying around the office.
- No time for physical activity. A complete corporate wellness program encourages both healthy eating and fitness. With the time constraints on employees around the holidays, it can be challenging for employees to make it to the gym.
Regardless of these challenges, your company can invest in healthy catering for the office this holiday season to change the way your employees think about holiday eating habits.
