Healthy Eating Habits, Around the Clock

Encouraging healthy eating during shiftwork can optimize employee health and well-being.  Host a seminar or activity that promotes healthy eating strategies designed especially for shiftworkers.  Programming should emphasize the value of three meals per day, healthy snacks, foods that are mild in flavor and easy to digest, and plenty of fluids.  If possible, suggest that employees have the largest meal in the middle of their “awake” period so that it will be digested before they go to bed, thus reducing the risk of gastrointestinal disturbances.
