10 Feb How to Boost Healthy Break Room Choices for Your Green Bay & Northeast Wisconsin Employees
Can you believe it’s February already? It seems like we were just making our New Year’s Resolutions to eat healthier and drink more water. Not only is it February, but it’s also American Heart Month. All across the U.S., people are turning their attention to cardiovascular health and their overall wellness goals. That includes your Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin employees. This is a great time to remind them about eating healthy in the break room. And BE’S Refreshments can help!
Highlight Choice Plus
Whether looking at one of our vending machines or in an open concept micro-market, it’s easy to know which products are healthier thanks to our Choice Plus program. Your employees need only look for the logo, a big green circle with a C+, on snacks, fresh food, and even beverages. It makes it simple to know when you are making good snacking decisions for your health.
Choice Plus includes a wide variety of options, including nut snacks, baked chips, coconut water, fruit, and even gourmet sandwiches made at a FDA-approved commissary here in the Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin area. To make the list, items need to be low calorie, low sodium, low fat, AND low sugar. The nutrition label is compared to our Choice Plus standards and only the best products make the cut. That Choice Plus logo is something you can trust in your Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin vending machines, micro-market, or corporate-sponsored pantry.
Make C+ part of your corporate wellness
We’ve worked with many Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin companies to enhance their corporate wellness programs. Not only can we include the Choice Plus options, but we can assist in motivating employees to choose them. Perhaps you want to subsidize the healthier items in order to reduce the price or upgrade to pantry service and have those healthy snacks, fresh foods, and beverages available free to your Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin employees. What a great way to empower employees to make good snacking choices and boost morale!
Don’t forget water
Of all the beverages we can drink, water remains the healthiest. Luckily, there are lots of ways to make water more appealing to your Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin employees. We offer point-of-use water filters that can enhance the flavor of your municipal water. These remove those particles that affect taste and deliver a stream-lined, yet delicious water. (Filters will also boost the flavor of your coffee and tea, with no extra effort.)
If water filtration service is not your style, there are plenty of bottled and canned water options available for your micro-market or vending machine. Just let us know that you want to focus on healthier options in the Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin workplace and we’ll talk about increasing the variety of water options or using a subsidy program to encourage hydration.
Workplace wellness rocks
Work is where we spend the majority of our time (at least 8 hours) so it can have a huge impact on health and wellness. We are using February to recommit to our healthy-living goals, not just for ourselves, but also our partners in Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin.
