Work for Google, Get Free Food

But what does all that free food and snacks at so many of today's new companies and much of it culinary masterpieces, do to the employees' waistlines?

In an interview with Fast Company, Maxime Rieman, director of product marketing at CoverWallet shared her thoughts. "You snack a bit, you eat the free meals, you stay a little late at work, and it kind of creeps up on you after a while." Rieman slowly gained weight at her previous job where a free lunch and dinner were offered daily, and the kitchen was always stocked with high-calorie granola bars, crackers, and sweets. Since joining CoverWallet, Rieman has lost half the weight she gained because, she says, her new employer offers healthier choices such as nuts and string cheese. 

More companies are turning to free food as a way to attract younger talent says Fast Company. According to Jobvite's 2016 Recruiter Nation survey, millennials reported they were more likely to get free snacks at work (35%) than to have medical coverage (29%), dental coverage (22%), or a 401K plan (21%). I guess deciding what's important has changed a bit.

Shoppers Believe Healthy Eating is Expensive, But it Doesn't Have to Be

Don't let your shoppers believe they can't afford to shop for health and wellness.

Many Americans may find themselves holding on to their New Year's resolutions for dear life, even just one week into the new year and particularly when it comes to diet changes and budgets. Despite the fact that we have been experiencing lower food prices in the supermarket, studies show that shoppers still expect healthy foods to come at a premium. And foods that are higher priced are commonly perceived as having a healthier profile.
