The food people get at work contributes to unhealthy eating as it tends to contain high amounts of sodium and refined grains, and very little whole grains and fruit, a US study has found.


The results of the study of 5,222 employees across the US suggest that workplaces can play an important role to help ensure access to and promote healthier food options.


“Our results suggest that the foods people get from work do not align well with the recommendations in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans,” said Stephen Onufrak from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The researchers analysed the food or beverages employees purchased at work from vending machines or cafeterias or that were obtained for free in common areas, at meetings or at worksite social events.


The food tended to be high in empty calories with more than 70% of the calories coming from food that was obtained for free.
