Step 4 Teach Healthy Habits

We will promote healthy habits that employees can take home and share with their families.

Helping your employees take their healthy habits home can raise a new generation of healthier, more active youth. It has also been shown to reduce employee absenteeism, as employees with healthy families have fewer unplanned absences.

Invite families to nutrition education events and demonstrations that teach healthy cooking, shopping, and menu planning skills. Provide healthy cookbooks or recipes to employee families. Consider partnering with a local school for special programs related to healthy, active choices.
