Wellness Idea #34: Incorporating Fruits and Veggies into the Workplace   

Why Incorporate Fruits and Veggies?

An easy way for businesses to start creating a healthier workplace is by creating more food options including fruits and veggies at the workplace. Having more fruits and veggies available in the workplace   allows employees the ability and access to eat healthier while at work.  This is important due to the immense amount of time most individuals spend at their workplace on a daily basis.
