Bring the 5 A Day Challenge to your worksite!

March is National Nutrition Month, and WorkWell NYC is celebrating with the 5 A Day Your Way Challenge! The week-long challenge kicks off on Wednesday, March 18th.

 

The 5 A Day Your Way challenge encourages employees to strive for 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day as part of a healthy diet. By participating in the challenge, employees will receive access to daily prompts, a personal tracker, meal planning tips, and more! 

This year, we’ve added a NEW worksite component to the challenge! Download the toolkit for all the information you need to set up 5 A Day Your Way @ Work and engage your co-workers in a fun and healthy activity!

5 A Day Your Way @ Work

To help build community around eating healthy, WorkWell NYC will be offering Ambassadors supplies to set up a 5 A Day Your Way @ Work poster at your worksite. 

 

The 5 A Day Your Way @ Work poster is a space for participants to share how they get to 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day.

 

Follow these steps to participate in 5 A Day Your Way @ Work: 

              1.  Download the Ambassador toolkit for everything you 

                need to set up the challenge at your site! ​​​

              2.  Register your worksite here
