Of­fice Can­teen Mak­ing You Fat?

Health & Nutrition - - NUTRITION UPDATE -

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’.
