A bounty of unhealthy snacks in American workplaces makes it difficult for employees to stick to a healthy diet, according to a new survey.
Sixty-three percent of respondents said they find it a challenge to eat healthy in their workplace and 47 percent said it's because there are too many unhealthy snack options available to them at work, United Press International reported.
Only 7 percent of respondents said they eat healthier at work than they do at home, said the survey, which was sponsored by Peapod Business Delivery.
Among the other findings:
- 28 percent of respondents said they were satisfied with the amount of healthy snack choices available to them at work.
- Fresh produce is the food that employees most want in the workplace, but only 36 percent of companies regularly provide vegetables and fruits.
- Candy is at the bottom of the list of foods that workers want, yet 1 in 3 businesses offer candy to employees.
