Healthy eating plays an important role in overall health and wellbeing as well as preventing a number of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. Eating well can help to maintain a healthy weight and provide us with the energy we need to get through the day. 

The workplace food environment can influence how and what workers eat. Workplace health programs can help to address healthy eating by providing access to a variety of healthy foods and improving the quality of foods offered at meetings and events. 

The Healthy Food and Drinks guide for workplaces is a set of guidelines to support businesses to provide healthier food and drink options to their staff. 

Creating healthy workplace policies and guidelines which include catering guidelines can help to ensure your staff are offered healthier options that support their health and wellbeing goals.
