Food choices at work

Increased pressure and demanding work pace often determine the employees’ diet habits. Food choices are not always the best ones available. Some employees organize their meals from home preparing lunch boxes; others resort to the easy solution of ready-made, fast-food meals; some do not eat at all for hours and some others tend to nibble on foods high in calories and low in nutrients, putting on weight and depriving themselves of nutrients. However, a balanced diet is important in order for employees to perform at their best and contribute to their good health. 
Organizing your office meals is not difficult. Properly organizing your meals from home will help you earn some time at work.
