A healthy diet has a tremendous impact on the health, happiness, and productivity of employees. But healthy eating in today’s frenetic world can be difficult. Despite available nutrition labeling, how many people really read and/or understand the nutrition labels and better yet, how many use the information to optimize their own health? Whether a person likes to cook or not, eat out or eat home-cooked meals, graze or eat sit-down meals— understanding good nutritional guidelines will help with overall health, outlook, productivity, energy, and healthy aging. This online nutrition awareness course will help educate and inspire trainees to better nutritional choices and better health.
Why “All About Nutrition” Matters:
A healthy diet can result in quick improvements, including controlling body weight, having extra energy, reaching full physical potential, and having a positive mood. It also helps the brain function well.
A healthy diet also helps avoid diet-related diseases that people tend to develop in their 40s and beyond, including adult-onset diabetes, heart trouble, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, some cancers, and stroke.
The good news is that employees can learn to make healthy and nutritional food choices.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 75% of employers’ healthcare costs and productivity losses are related to employee lifestyle choices.
Understanding nutritional needs is critical to maintaining a healthy diet. This nutrition training course helps the trainee:
- Understand the importance of good nutrition;
