How a healthy diet can make for a healthy social life

Going out for dinner is a great way to socialise, but it often comes with the risk of eating unhealthily. So here’s the person you need to ask for advice.

Dining out on a healthy diet

Imagine having a job that pays you to eat at restaurants every week, trying out a wide variety of tasty dishes each time. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Well, there is a way to live this dream…

The UK has just seen the appointment of its first Official Eating Officer by weight loss company, Weight Watchers. And the aim for this person is to prove that it’s possible to socialise at a meal out, while maintaining a healthy diet at the same time.

This involves eating at restaurants twice a week, testing their menus for healthy (and delicious) options. It’ll certainly put the UK’s favourite eateries to the test.

Choice is everything

Making sure that restaurants provide healthy options is important. Getting together for social occasions is a vital part of everyone’s wellbeing, and a lack of meal choices can stand in the way of that.

The majority of Brits feel that pursuing a healthier diet can make socialising difficult. And many of us have ducked out of a social event due to the lack of choice available to people paying closer attention to what they eat.

Here’s hoping the new Official Eating Officer will uncover some hidden treats on menus across the country.

Wellbeing in the workplace

We know just how important it is to look after health and wellbeing — especially in the workplace. That’s why we make it easy to access healthy and nutritious choices.

So, your people can enjoy a tasty meal without having to worry about whether they’re looking after themselves. And they can socialise, too. We give workers a relaxing area to come together, share their day and grab a bite to eat.
