An easy way to encourage healthful eating in your business or organization is by serving healthy food choices at meetings and events. Many initiatives have already been developed to do just this and can provide a good framework for your organization to begin implementing healthier food choices.

The University of Minnesota School of Public Health offers these 2 simple guidelines for healthier meetings, seminars, and events:

  1. Offer healthy food choices at breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and receptions
  1. Consider not offering food at mid-morning or mid-afternoon meetings, presentations, and seminars
