Good physical health is closely linked to good mental health—and low physical activity and poor eating habits can undermine this. This toolkit has information and ideas to help employers take a positive approach to activity and diet.
This is part of a suite of eight interconnected toolkits, produced by Business in the Community and Public Health England, to help every organisation support the mental and physical health and wellbeing of its employees. Each addresses a different aspect of workplace wellbeing, with a common thread of mental health running through them all. They’re freely available and designed to be relevant to employers across all sectors.
The toolkit includes an overview of what we know about physical activity, healthy eating and healthy weight, and brings it together into a holistic approach to supporting employees’ physical health. It’s full of practical ideas, outlining not just what employers can do but how to do it. It’s divided into sections on different topics with built-in navigation and links between them, so you can follow it step by step or go straight to the sections you want to know more about.
