Join us for National Healthy Lunch Day

Join us for National Healthy Lunch Day

It may be Eat Smart Friday here at Walkingspree but we want you to be aware of another day you should focus on when you’re making a concentrated effort to eat smarter and healthier:

November is National Diabetes Awareness month and the American Diabetes Association also wants us to recognize National Healthy Lunch Day.  On Tuesday, November people everywhere will be helping raise awareness about the need to make healthy choices at lunchtime. This day is set to inspire and ignite conversation concerning the importance of eating healthy and moving the country towards healthier lunch habits not only on National HealthyDiabetes Awareness MonthLunch Day but everyday.

There is great misunderstanding about what is good to eat, what’s healthy and what’s not. Frequently food choices are full of calories, yet lacking nutritional value.  This leads to expanding waistlines, fatigue, lack of energy, and rising rates of type 2 diabetes.   It can also lead to obesity-related illness.  The American Diabetes Association has a goal to encourage good nutrition, emphasizing its importance as part of a healthy lifestyle. To start, they invite you to do lunch—a healthy lunch!

We, at Walkingspree, hope you’ll join in the inaugural National Healthy Lunch Day. The American Diabetes Association offers a free, easy-to-use e-toolkit on their website.  It provides a variety of customizable ideas, tips, lunch-themed activities and additional ways to help companies and organizations motivate, inspire and empower employees and communities to eat healthy lunches.  Learn More.
