In today’s fast-paced world, maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be challenging, especially for busy professionals. East Midlands Vending recognises the importance of promoting health and nutrition in the workplace. We’re committed to providing convenient and nutritious snack options that align with recommended daily allowances and support the overall health and vitality of your staff.
One key aspect of promoting wellbeing is understanding and meeting the recommended daily allowances (RDAs) for essential nutrients. RDAs serve as guidelines for the nutrients our bodies need to function optimally. These include essential vitamins, minerals, protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Meeting these RDAs ensures that our bodies receive the necessary fuel to perform daily tasks efficiently. However, with hectic work schedules, it’s often challenging for employees to maintain a balanced diet. This is where snacking plays a crucial role.
Snacking can either complement or detract from our daily nutrient intake. Opting for nutrient-dense snacks that provide essential vitamins and minerals is key to supporting overall health. At East Midlands Vending, we recognise the significance of offering a diverse range of snacks that contribute positively to nutritional needs. From protein and cereal bars to fresh fruit and yogurt, our Vending and MicroMarket options are carefully curated to provide a balance of macro and micronutrients.
Understanding food labels is also paramount in making informed dietary choices. By deciphering labels, employees can identify hidden sugars, unhealthy fats, and excessive sodium content in snacks. Moreover, initiatives such as the sugar tax have been instrumental in raising awareness about the detrimental effects of excessive sugar consumption. Over 95% of the range of cold drinks sold by East Midlands Vending fall under the sugar tax threshold. By offering snacks and drinks with reduced sugar content, we not only promote healthier eating habits but also support national efforts to combat rising health issues.
In the workplace, access to nutritious snacks can boost morale, productivity, and overall wellbeing. By making healthy, calorie-rich foods readily available, you empower our employees to make smarter dietary choices throughout the day. Moreover, prioritising employee health fosters a culture of wellness and reinforces our commitment to their long-term success.
East Midlands Vending is dedicated to promoting health and nutrition in the workplace. By offering a variety of nutrient-rich snack options, educating employees about food labels, and supporting initiatives like the sugar tax, your company can support the overall wellbeing of its employees. With this holistic approach, East Midlands Vending is not only providing sustenance but also promoting a culture of health and wellness within the workplace.
