Health & Well-being

A truly healthy lifestyle requires a broad approach: adopting smart eating habits and participating in athletic activities. We encourage balanced lifestyles through our services in schools, hospitals, workplaces and senior living environments.

Further Researches

We are convinced that what we put into our bodies has a direct link with our performance. In fact, studies show that good eating habits can increase attention spans, improve memory and boost well-being. For example, students who maintain healthy diets are 41 percent less likely to perform poorly in school. That’s why our dining options encourage balanced meals by combining tasty choices with nutritional value.

Encouraging physical activity and fighting against sedentary lifestyles can also impact health and productivity. Research shows that whether organizations subsidize gym memberships, offer access to health coaching or simply encourage employees to get up and walk, wellness programs can reduce sick days by 45 percent. Today’s forward thinking companies and universities even provide nap rooms to recharge tired minds or mindfulness training to keep individuals on-track and focused.

Sometimes in order to succeed with well-being goals, expert guidance and advice is necessary. Our services provide this support through our nutritional coaches who construct balanced meal plans or helpline counselors who give smokers the motivation they need to quit.
