Holiday Gluttony at the Office? Survive the Sugar Season and Give Back to your Community

As we enter into a lengthy, sugary-filled holiday season, many clients tell us that their workplaces are one of the biggest barriers to eating better and maintaining health goals due to the food environment. For example, it’s not uncommon to see bowls of caramels at the check-out, jelly beans at the computer, boxes of donuts from managers, or thank you chocolates from customers.
