Participate in National Healthy Lunch Day on September 19

On Tuesday, September 19, Eat Smart Move More South Carolina will participate in the American Diabetes Association’s National Healthy Lunch Day. Join us by hosting a healthy luncheon for your employees, encouraging them to bring a healthy lunch, challenging them to make healthy choices if they eat out on this day, or holding a promotional event.

Our wellness goal is to promote good nutrition as part of a healthy lifestyle, and help everyone make better food choices. To start, let’s do lunch—a healthy lunch.

Here are some helpful tips to share with your employees:
