Workplace Wellness: Supporting Employee Nutrition


Optimize Your Benefit Plan for the Best Credible Nutrition Support

In my Dietitian practice, I often find out that one of the key reasons people don’t consult a dietician for a nutrition or food-related health issue is that dietitian services are not covered under their health insurance. Food and nutrition play a central role in a person’s health, productivity and overall well-being. Poor dietary habits don’t only cause problems with an individual’s physical health, poor nutrition also impacts an employee’s work performance:

  • Reduced cognitive ability
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased mental effectiveness
  • Irritability
  • Lower energy levels
  • Reduced ability to think clearly
  • Decreased ability to perform your job effectively
  • Higher levels of stress and depression
  • Decreased productivity

Employer benefit plans that include insurance coverage for dietitian services are important for a healthy and productive workforce. As a practicing dietitian for over 20 years and a member of the Dietitians of Canada Employee Health Benefits Advisory Committee, I work with companies and HR professionals to address the links between diet and productivity, and what employers can do to improve the health of employees to the benefit of the workplace. In addition to providing workplace wellness programs and counselling to companies via Health Stand Nutriton, I consult with HR professionals on how to support employee nutrition.

4 Things Every Meal Planning Newbie Should Know...


How to Meal Plan When You are Just Starting Out

By Registered Dietitian Kate Chury on our team

Meal planning is one thing that, as a Registered Dietitian, I think is essential. Personally, I don’t always love doing it but (and this is a big BUT) it makes my life so much easier. It makes the often hectic weeknights more manageable. It makes me waste less food. And it encourages me to try new recipes (by ensuring I have all ingredients on hand when I need them). Maybe you have been thinking about meal planning but are a little intimidated about the whole process. Perhaps, you just don’t know where to start and the thought of meal planning just seems overwhelming. I’m here to tell you that it’s okay to feel this way but meal planning doesn’t need to be hard and it doesn’t have to be a huge endeavor. Here are some things you need to know if you are starting out:
