“What am I going to eat for lunch?”
It’s a question asked countless times each day. And, more often than not, the choice that is ultimately made isn’t a healthy one. Most of us struggle when it comes to making healthy lunch choices.
But we can learn to make better choices, and there’s no better time to start than National Healthy Lunch Day, which is September 19. DHEC encourages you to join in this effort by the American Diabetes Association aimed at raising awareness about the need to make healthy choices at lunchtime.
The intent is to spark dialogue about the importance of healthy eating and encourage people across America to develop healthier lunch habits, not just on September 19 but in the days, months and years to come.
So, instead of asking yourself, “What am I going to eat for lunch today?” consider instead: “What will my healthy lunch be today?”
Get started September 19 by preparing or purchasing a healthy, nutritious lunch. More than that, be ambitious and get your team at work — or your entire workplace — involved. Not only will it be fun, but it will be healthy.
