National Healthy Lunch Day
September 19, 2017

There is tremendous confusion about what to eat. Often the food choices people make are full of calories yet lack the nutritional value the body needs. This confusion leads to expanding waistlines, low energy and rising rates of type 2 diabetes and obesity-related illnesses. National Healthy Lunch Day™ is an annual opportunity to promote the importance of good nutrition as part of a healthy lifestyle, and help people make better food choices.

We hope you'll participate in the next National Healthy Lunch Day on Sept. 19, 2017.
