CDC: Workers Eat Too Much Free Food at the Office
Americans eat too much food at work - more than 1,000 calories a week - finds a new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Researchers found the average weekly calories workers consumed were from vending machines and free food found in common areas, at meetings or work social events. The average weekly calories a worker consumed was nearly 1,300 in empty calories, with more than 70 percent of the calorie count coming from free food.
Researchers recommend employers help their workers by providing wellness programs and healthier food choices in cafeterias and vending machines.
So, maybe skip that donut next time?
