As the industry leader in fresh fruit delivery to offices, The FruitGuys mission is to help grow healthy companies and bring smart snacking into the workplace. We pioneered the “fruit at work” concept in San Francisco in 1998 to help companies provide healthy options to employees during their workday. And to us, that means not only delivering delicious, farm-fresh fruit to offices, but helping employees make better, healthier choices through the well-researched nutrition, fitness, and office culture coverage we provide in our fruit box newsletters and online blog, The FruitGuys Magazine.
As an antidote to the information overload most of us face daily, we want to engage your sensory receptors with easily digestible graphical renditions of our editorial coverage.
In other words: pretty pictures.
We hope you enjoy! Please send any feedback or suggestions about our Infographics page to firstname.lastname@example.org. Have an extremely engaging day.

Why fruit is becoming the trendiest office snack.
No one is trying to take away your treats. We at The FruitGuys enjoy a delicious, sugary morsel as much as the next guy (in moderation, of course). But there is a real benefit to the natural sweetness contained in a piece of fresh fruit. And unlike most artifically sugary morsels, the vitamins, nutrients, and fiber in fruit are not only wrapped up in a delicious self-contained package, they provide a natural energy boost without the inevitable spike and crash caused by the intake of refined sugar.
Most fruit contains powerful antioxidants that can help protect against heart disease and reduce the risk of cancer. Its natural fiber aids in digestion (#colonhealth), and its high water content keeps you happy and hydrated. Plus, it's really dang yummy.
We hope you enjoy our infographic about "nature's candy" and that it inspires you to add more fresh fruit to your diet.

Here's how and why to eat right at the office.
An apple a day does more than keep the doctor away. Aside from being good for the waistline, replacing unhealthy snacks in the office with farm-fresh fruit and other healthy items, such as nuts or trail mix, can help improve mental clarity and decrease burnout. It's also great for combating stress!
Developing good eating habits in the workplace reduces the risk of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. It's more than just food for thought.
