Wellness programs traditionally focus on smoking cessation, exercise, health screenings and nutritional education as a means of improving employee health and morale. However, experts agree that focusing on the dietary habits of employees is critical for treating some of the most costly and prevalent health problems – including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and obesity.
Still, many workplaces promote poor eating habits by offering cakes and cookies for breaks, meetings, and office parties, and by stocking vending machines with fast food and sugary drinks. Not only do these poor food choices increase the risk of obesity and its related health problems, but they also reduce mental capacity and physical endurance necessary for employees to give their best during the work day.
Few companies have tried to introduce medical foods into wellness programs, simply because they are unsure of how to do so or because they fear employee opposition to healthy, but poor-tasting food products.
- Over 50% of corporate profits go to cover employee health care costs.
- On the average, for every 100 workers in this country, 27 have cardiovascular disease, 24 have high blood pressure, 50 or more have high cholesterol, 26 are classified as being obese.
- A company investment of $100 to $150 per employee each year toward a workplace health program can save companies $300 to $450 per employee.
