But it’s not always that easy.You can probably remember a time when you grabbed a chocolate bar, even though you knew an apple was better for you. Why do we so often make decisions that aren’t really the best choices for us?When we’re busy at work, it can be easy to prioritise workload over wellbeing and you might feel like it’s difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle when on the job.This course is here to help improve your healthy eating at work. We’ll focus on some of the daily choices you can make that will help your work life be happier, healthier and more productive.Key InsightsDesk dining - Don’t eat at your desk.

Irritable, headachy, can’t summon up any effort? You might just be a little bit dehydrated.Sugar Limit - It’s good to understand how much sugar is in the food we eat.
