To encourage mindful eating behaviors and socialization by providing communal eating spaces.
Demanding work schedules and a lack of communal eating spaces can lead people to eat in isolation during meal breaks. Distracted eating at workstations while doing work, reading, watching television or listening to the radio may result in eating more, both immediately and during later food intake. Eating attentively and placing focus on the process of eating, on the other hand, may lead to better control of food intake. Time spent in break areas can lead to better eating habits, encourage social interactions, and help reduce stress.
Eating spaces for occupants contain all of the following:
Refrigerator, device for reheating food (such as microwave or toaster oven), and sink.
Amenities for dish washing.
At least one cabinet or storage unit available for occupants use.
Eating utensils, including spoons, forks, knives and microwave-safe plates and cups.
