The Great Appetizer Challenge: Little Dishes, Big Health Benefits

There are many health benefits to eating small plates as more frequent, smaller meals. The Great Appetizer Challenge is a powerful program to help boost employee wellness.

First, your group is divided into teams. Each team is then challenged to create appetizers that look great and taste great (no pigs in a blanket here). TeamBonding provides all of the necessary ingredients, utensils, and recipes.

Once the cooking is complete, all of the tempting creations will be showcased on a Grand Buffet for all participants to share and enjoy. In the event’s finale, the judges will select a champion based on taste, presentation, team work, and leadership.

What does your team do to boost employee wellness? Have you ever cooked as a team?
