How Google got its employees to eat their vegetables

It’s extremely hard to make good decisions in a poor environment.
“Bakker’s first instinct was to work with researchers on ways to get employees to crave better food, even meeting with one Dutch scientist studying “flavor rules” that might empirically make healthy foods taste better. But Bakker eventually concluded that the effort was hopeless. Put a hamburger next to healthy whole grains, and our lizard brains will choose the burger nearly every time. So, instead of merely changing the food, Bakker changed the foodscape, ensuring that nearly every option at Google is healthy — or at least healthyish — and that the options that weren’t stayed out of sight and out of mind.”
