At AND Digital we are serious about our responsibility to ensure our people are mentally and physically at their best. As part of our wellness scheme within AND Digital, a major part of this is looking at our diets and making small changes to boost our mental and physical wellbeing.
We start our working week with a fresh fruit delivery.
Every Monday, our fruit supplier delivers enough seasonal fruit to both our head office and our seven client offices, so we can enjoy fresh fruit every day of the week. This also means we start off the week with healthy eating in mind.
The benefits of fruit are obvious. But did you know that fruit also activates your brain? The natural sugars found in fruit stimulate the brain to recall information quicker and easier. So for a natural sugar rush, it’s far healthier to reach for the sweet and yummy fruit rather than that chocolate bar!
When meetings overrun or you need a mid-morning snack, our people and clients are thankful for having a fruit basket on hand. Eating a piece of fruit keeps you satisfied and you’re not distracted by a rumbling stomach.
A natural dose of vitamins and minerals throughout the week helps keep our people and clients energised. By providing this free healthy alternative to replace a calorific snack, we are looking after our people’s health and saving them money – it’s a winner all round!Read More From This Author
