March is National Nutrition Month
March 7, 2018
National Nutrition Month is a great time to evaluate your current knowledge and habits. Small changes over time can yield big results. Making simple swaps like whole wheat bread instead of white, or replacing a sugary drink with water, can help your overall nutrition. The City of Boston Wellness Committee (a group we're proud to belong to!) is helping employees learn about nutrition and healthy choices with the recent launch of the Wellness Portal.
The Wellness Portal is open to City employees and their spouses. You’ll find tons of helpful information, such as tips on meal planning and delicious recipes. The portal also houses additional information about other health benefits, resources in the area, and upcoming challenges. The first challenge, Color Your Plate, begins in March and is a great way to begin using the portal. Folks can participate solo, or as part of a team. There's also the potential to win some great prizes! You can sign up here!
The City of Boston Employee Assistance Program recognizes the importance of nutrition — as well as adequate sleep, regular exercise, and access to mental health resources — for our overall health. This information and more will all be available on the portal. We hope you decide to participate!
