A collection of fruit in a cardboard box

Wellbeing in the workplace requires a multifaceted approach. Not all the initiatives you introduce have to be complicated. You may be looking at encouraging employees to eat healthier. But, if free sweets and bottomless caffeine drinks are the only options on the menu, this won’t help. Sure, no one is saying people should cut out sugar snacks entirely. Biscuits, sweets and chocolate are still fine to consume as part of a balanced diet. But, if you introduce free bowls of fresh fruit, this should give your employees the option to switch to a healthier sugar treat when they’re in need of an energy boost.

Let’s take a look at the powerful ingredients that make fruit such a great choice of snack.

Whilst caffeine and sweets provide a rapid energy boost, the thing about fruit is that it provides a more sustainable source of energy for your body. That’s because many varieties of fruit contain fructose, a natural sugar. Fruit is also rich in fibre, which helps to maintain a healthy gut. It’s also known to be a mood-booster. In a survey carried out by British Summer Fruits, 55% reported feeling in a better mood at work when they eat healthily.

What about the benefits of specific types of fruit?

Apples

Apples are known to help boost alertness and energy levels. High in antioxidants, they also help to fight against inflammation.

Bananas

Bananas contain fibre, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and several other beneficial nutrients. These may have a number of health benefits, such as for digestive and heart health.

Grapes

Juicy and refreshing, grapes also contain many important vitamins and minerals, including vitamins B and K, which can be beneficial for bone health.
