Healthy Lunch break off the office workers diary!

office-lunch.jpgFor office workers around the world, the healthy lunch break is now out of fashion. It is now hard to find any of them leaving the desk for lunch or eating anything green…The healthy lunch is gone and been replaced by sandwiches, crisps and soda. Office workers are now working longer hours and are usually not willing to prepare healthy lunch for the next day, so the immediate answer to this problem is fat-laden fast food. Eating at lunch time has also been replaced by snacking throughout the day.

However, some companies are still encouraging their employees to take time off for lunch away from their desks, so they would be refreshed for the afternoon.

Richard Smith, MD of SOS: “I encourage everyone to take a break from the office at lunchtime, aswell as a mini break in the mornings and afternoons. And they come back full of energy and ready for action"
