How we improve it?
Workplace nutrition seminar (45 minutes)
No Fuss Healthy Eating seminar covers topics relevant for time-deprived workers such as healthy fast food alternatives, food preparation for workers, understanding food labelling, diets and disease, and nutrition for shift workers. Managing weight and energy levels is particularly difficult for shift workers. This group often faces challenges sourcing and preparing healthy food due to shift patterns and research shows that satiety hormones are often affected by working nights. This talk, based on latest research into shift workers and nutrition explains how to time meals around night work and what to include in your diet to balance hormones, energy and weight. Seminar concludes with a healthy bbq.
For workers with a chronic health condition, specialist individualised advice is required to ensure that the employee receives information and advice that tailored to suit their chronic health condition.
Workers who have a chronic health condition are referred to the nominated medical officer.
Eligible workers are then provided with up to 5 sessions with FUSS’s accredited dietician.

FUSS works with local supplies to deliver fresh fruit and vegetables to your site for communal use, healthy canteen options, or available for personalized weekly orders for your workforce.
