Product Description

What a person eats, how active they are, genetics and the environment in which they live, work and play all have a role in determining whether or not a person is at a healthy body weight. With adults spending a large amount of time at work and consuming at least one meal a day in addition to one or two snacks, workplaces are an ideal venue to promote healthy food choices.

Join CCOHS for a webinar during Canada's Healthy Workplace Month, with Heather Harvey of the Ontario Public Health Association. In this session, she will discuss healthy eating in the workplace and how to successfully implement healthy eating programs. It will draw on experiences learned through the Eat Smart!® Workplace Program, a healthy eating award program for Ontario workplaces. Even if your workplace is outside of Ontario, you will find value in the lessons learned and strategies discussed for starting and maintaining interest in your own healthy eating program.

This webinar was recorded on October 13, 2010.
