National Nutrition Month® is celebrated in March, but making smart diet choices year-round is key to eating well – and being well! In addition to encouraging you to stay physically active, this challenge will boost your ability to navigate nutrition and provide resources to help you make healthy food choices now and in the future. The challenge, sponsored by the Green Mountain Higher Education Consortium, starts on April 15th and ends on May 25th. You will earn Wellable Points for tracking physical activity, logging meals and snacks, and participating in weekly nutrition quizzes.
Weekly $50 gift cards to your local food coop will be raffled off each week and at the end of the challenge three grand prize winners will be drawn at random to win one of three $100 gift cards to your local food coop. Don’t miss out. Please join us.
This challenge is for faculty and staff. To register, new Wellable users can click here. If you have participated in a Wellable challenge (i.e. Mind Body Challenge) in the past you have been automatically registered to participate. Questions can be directed to Rebecca Schubert, GMHEC Employee Well-being Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
