Construction as an industry is notorious for fostering poor health habits, and snacks and meals while on-site is one of the major culprits!
We came across a post recently that discussed healthier options for construction workers including:
- choose healthy but convenient snack foods
- packing plenty of protein
- consuming whole grains for sustained energy
- drink plenty of water
We would add that its important to avoid high sugar, refined snack products that have very high glycaemic index (or more correctly, Glycaemic Load), and particularly to avoid drinking Coke and other soft drinks that are extremely high in refined sugar and do little to properly hydrate your body.
