Corporate Presentations and Nutrition Workshops – empowering employees (and employers!) with great nutrition
The facts around adult physical health are startling for both employers and for public health. By 2030, the NHS estimates that 48% of men and 43% of women will be obese. Already, 3.3 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes in the UK (2014), and by 2025 it is estimated this will rise to 5 million. Dementia, diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease and stroke are the biggest cause of preventable deaths in the UK.
Some risk factors are genetic, but others are impacted by factors that can be addressed, including weight, physical activity, diet, smoking, blood pressure and cholesterol. There is emerging evidence that sedentary lifestyles, and prolonged sitting can lead to health risks and overall reduced life spans .
With a significant proportion of adults spending the majority of the typical working week in the workplace, responsible employers must recognise the strong link between working practices and public health outcomes.
