Catering Advice, Glasgow

Benefits of serving breakfast at work

When we think about catering services for corporate settings, we usually imagine the perfect lunch or dinner. What some people do not realise is just how beneficial it can be to provide your employees with a delicious and nutritious breakfast. Here are some of the top advantages.

By serving breakfast, you will encourage your staff to arrive earlier. Instead of struggling to get everyone into the office on time, you can be sure that they will all be happy to arrive early if it means that they get a scrumptious meal out of it. By getting everyone to work earlier, it will also help get everyone working on top which is great for productivity.

Another way of improving productivity is by boosting morale at work. By providing breakfast, you are relieving the inconvenience of preparing this meal for themselves. When something is convenient, it automatically makes us feel better and more positive. It's the perfect positive start to every day.

The morning meal that you provide will also help keep your employees satisfied and full of energy until lunch. Make sure that you serve a healthy and balanced meal so that your employees do not suffer from a sugar rush followed by crash. This crash can lead to that dreadful afternoon slump. Keeping their blood sugar stable, however, will help maintain steady performances throughout the day.

Finally, don't forget about the importance of team building. When your employees get along with one another, they are far more likely to perform better together too. By giving them an opportunity to socialise and get to know one another over breakfast, you are helping create stronger bonds. Your employees, clients, and business will all benefit from this.

Remember, you do not have to prepare breakfast yourself every morning. Instead, you can have a catering service prepare and deliver the food each morning at a set time. Make sure that you choose different foods for each morning so that your staff do not get bored.

Corporate breakfast menu ideas

Breakfast, as many people know, is the most important meal of the day. This might sound like a cliché, but it really is important to give your body a kick start with all the best nutrients. If you are hosting a corporate event in the earlier part of the day, it's also important to make sure that you offer everyone a healthy meal.

Many people agree that protein is important to get you through the day. This is why eggs are popular for breakfast. You could include an omelet bar with a variety of fillers from which to choose. Some people prefer egg whites only and others enjoy the whole egg. You should have a variety of meats and veggies too. Some popular omelet ingredients include tomatoes, peppers, olives, and onions. You will need cheese too, of course.

If you already have an omelet bar set up, you could also offer scrambled eggs with or without cheese. Other delicious ingredients like sausage can be added to the eggs as they are tossed around in the pan or on the side if preferred.

Some other options include French toast and pancakes. You could even offer some fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, cheese and cold cuts for those who prefer a cold breakfast. Don't forget to include a few different types of bread and crackers. Biscuits, scones, and muffins are also great to finish off the meal. Finally, don't forget to serve coffee, tea, and fresh fruit juices. Orange juice is one of the top choices for morning meals.

Breakfast options for your employees

When we think about catering meals for our employees, we usually think about lunch and possibly even dinner if employees work late. Breakfast is often referred to as the most important meal of the day which makes some wonder why so many people skip this meal. By skipping breakfast or not eating a healthy breakfast, you are compromising your health as well as your mental capacity. As a business owner or manager, you can help improve performance and encourage your team to arrive early by serving a delicious variety of breakfast foods.

Now, breakfast does not always mean bacon and eggs. You want something light, healthy, and foods that will not leave everyone feeling hungry an hour or two later. Some good examples include bagels, muffins, yogurt parfait, fresh fruit, cheeses, cold meats, and a selection of breads. All of these items are easy for your caterer to whip up and deliver first thing in the morning and they will not leave anyone feeling far too bloated to think straight.

Don't forget to include some beverages like coffee, tea, and fresh fruit juice to help make this meal even more fulfilling. Fresh fruit juice is particularly great for hydration as well as nutritional value so make sure that you don't skip these!
