Hamburg - A healthy diet at work is difficult for many people in Germany. According to nutritional study published today by Techniker Krankenkasse (TK), one in three men (36 percent) and one in four women (24 percent) say that they simply cannot eat properly at work. According to this, not even every second person (48 percent) can actually eat in peace during the work break.
The work environment ranks high on the list of reasons that prevent working people from eating healthy diet: third behind Lack of time and poor stamina. 39 percent of respondents said the limited choice of food at work was problem. Four out of ten employees surveyed said that they didn't eat lot during the day, but that they did properly at home in the evening. Half of the men said this.

For companies, it pays to offer their employees enough breaks and suitable rooms for healthy eating. Employee health is factor that has decisive influence on the company's success, for example in the form of higher motivation and better work results.
