Office Canteen Making You Fat?
Foods eaten in US workplaces – whether purchased in cafeterias, or available to employees for free – are usually unhealthy, say experts. A survey of what working adults ate over the course of a week found that one in four people got food at work one or more times, and that it was generally high in empty calories, salt, fat and sugar. These treats included pizza, soft drinks, cookies, brownies, cakes, pies and candy. They added up, on average, to nearly 1,300 calories per week, the study authors report in the ‘Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’.
