Healthy Meetings

Healthy Meeting Toolkit

Studies show a strong relationship between the physical and social environments of the workplace and
the health behaviors of employees.

Nearly half of our waking hours are spent at work, and many of those hours are spent in meetings and conferences. By adopting healthy meeting guidelines, your organization can help to create an environment that supports employees’ and members’ efforts to eat well and be physically active. Below is the Healthy Meeting Toolkit, developed by members of the National Alliance for Nutrition and Activity (NANA). It includes guidance on key components of a healthy meeting and resources to help make hosting healthy meetings easier.
