Why Your Workplace Needs a Fruit Delivery Service

According to a study published in the British Journal of Health Psychology, consuming fruits and vegetables can increase feelings of happiness, life satisfaction, and overall well-being. The study found that the more fruits and vegetables people consumed, the happier they felt, with the greatest benefits observed at 7 servings per day. The study also found that people who consumed more fruits and vegetables tended to be more creative and curious, which are important attributes for success in the workplace.[1]

1, Boost Productivity

Eating fruits can help improve cognitive function and memory, which can lead to higher productivity levels at work.

2, Improve Health

Fruits are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that help maintain a healthy immune system and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

3, Reduce Sick Days

With a stronger immune system, employees are less likely to get sick, resulting in fewer missed days at work.

One such study was conducted by the University of Otago in New Zealand, which found that providing employees with free fruit resulted in a significant reduction in the number of sick days taken.

The study involved 430 employees from 32 workplaces who were provided with free fruit for 20 weeks. The results showed that the number of sick days taken by the employees decreased by 20%, from an average of 4.4 days to 3.5 days. The study also found that employees who ate more fruit experienced a greater reduction in sick days than those who ate less fruit.

Another study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that employees who participated in a workplace wellness program that included fruit and vegetable consumption as one of its components had significantly fewer sick days than those who did not participate in the program.[3]

4, Increase Energy Levels

The natural sugars found in fruits can provide a quick boost of energy without the crash that comes with consuming sugary snacks and drinks.

5, Promote Weight Management

Fruits are low in calories and high in fiber, making them a great snack option for employees looking to maintain a healthy weight.

6, Support Mental Health

Fruit consumption has been linked to better mental health outcomes in several studies. One possible reason for this is that fruits are rich in antioxidants, which can protect the brain from damage caused by free radicals. In addition, fruits contain a variety of nutrients that are important for brain health, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, folate, and potassium.

A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that people who consumed more fruits and vegetables had lower levels of psychological distress than those who consumed less. The study also found that the positive effects of fruit and vegetable consumption on mental health were strongest in low-income individuals.

Another study published in the Journal of Health Psychology found that consuming fruits and vegetables was associated with lower levels of anxiety and depression in young adults. The study found that the positive effects of fruit and vegetable consumption on mental health were strongest on days when participants consumed more fruits and vegetables than usual. [2]
