Do we really eat that much cake at work? I don't think we have it so often that it's a problem and it's a nice treat when we do, to help get through the working day. All things in moderation, as they say!
The Faculty of Dental Surgery said people should cut down on eating cake and biscuits at work as it added to obesity and poor oral health. Professor Nigel Hunt said the UK needed "a culture change" at work. Tips to cut back on sugar included keeping it as a lunchtime treat and hiding snacks out of view. Professor Hunt, dean of the faculty at the Royal College of Surgeons, said it may be a case of managers wanting to reward staff, colleagues wanting to celebrate or people bringing presents back from their holidays that sees sugary snacks going into the workplace. But he said it was detrimental to employees' health and they should make a New Year's resolution to "combat cake culture" in 2017.
