Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
One smart Seattle company makes wellness eating a reality for workers. Did you know that in 2013 there were 49 tons of fresh fruit delivered to offices in and near Seattle? This is the type of service that is provided to his customers according to Tom O’Connor, owner of Market Fresh Fruit in Seattle, Washington. Over 500,000 servings of fresh healthy fruit consumed at work last year in offices with as few as 12 up to 500 employees.
“Eating more fruits and vegetables can increase productivity, and also helps with weight-management,” said O’Connor, who offers fresh fruit delivery to offices in the Seattle area. “When we eat nutrient-rich foods our brains function better thus making for happier employees in the workplace.”
“I’ve found that making food – and great food experiences – part of everyday office life can make employees happier and more productive,” said Fedele Bauccio is the CEO and cofounder of Bon Appétit Management Company in a recent article on Harvard Business Review. Bauccio added that eating healthier at the office encourages workers to stay on campus instead of going out to restaurants.
Dani Berg, wellness coach for HealthPartners, pointed out in a recent article that, “The workplace is where most of us spend a majority of our time during the week. This is a place where habits are formed and can place huge barriers on our fitness, nutrition and weight-loss goals.”
