Let’s recap the latest webinar in our Thrive Through Food series with Nutrition Australia.
As carers, educators and leaders, we understand that your first priority is often the people you look after day-to-day. But taking care of others begins with taking care of ourselves.
Woolworths at Work recently hosted the fourth webinar in our series Thrive Through Food, in partnership with Nutrition Australia. We were joined by Registered Nutritionist Anneliese Twigg to take a deep dive into looking after your health and wellbeing, particularly for those in caring and education roles.
If you missed it or want to watch it again, please check out the webinar recording above. We covered the impact that food, stress and lifestyle factors have on our energy levels and shared practical tips for supporting your health and wellbeing.
Did you know?
- Fatigue affects 1.5 million Australians every year1
This can come in the form of physical, mental and emotional fatigue.
- The signs of fatigue are not always obvious
They can include chronic tiredness, muscle weakness, reduced hand-eye coordination, impaired vision and low motivation.
- Fatigue can influence our food choices
When we’re sleep deprived, our brains often send signals that lead us to choose energy-dense, high-fat foods to satisfy our cravings.
- A balanced diet shouldn’t feel restrictive
Variety, versatility and enjoyment – that’s what it’s all about! Plan your meals around fresh fruit and veg, wholegrains and lean protein sources with feel-good foods in moderation.
- Carbs are not the enemy, despite what diet culture tells us
Our brain relies on carbohydrates as its main source of energy. Aim for low GI foods that provide a slow, consistent release of energy.
Woolworths at Work is designed to take the stress out of managing business groceries. Fast online ordering, convenient early morning delivery windows and minimal admin, all to give you more time back in your day. But how does this tie into health, energy and nutrition?
Our great value range is loaded with healthier snacks, fresh fruit and nourishing ingredients to give you and your teams the energy to do great work. Our built-in list functionality and dietary filters also make it easier to plan your meals. Why not speak to your management team about adding a few items to your orders to keep staff fueled and focused throughout the working day? It’s a small addition that can make a huge impact.
