Do you provide yourself with healthier options at work, such as yogurt in the work refrigerator or a package of trail mix in your desk?

  • Smaller, frequent meals can help prevent overeating later in the day.

When you bring snacks for your co-workers, do you bring fruits, vegetables or items that are lower in fat, sodium and/or calories?

  • You can get the most nutrition for your money if you compare Nutrition Facts labels on food packages.

Do you keep yourself well-hydrated at work, with water as your main beverage?

  • Staying well-hydrated helps you think more clearly and may help prevent overeating.

Do you measure out a serving from the food package?

  • If you eat crackers directly from the food package, you are likely to eat more than a serving.

Could you swap the contents of the candy dish with healthier options (such as single-serving packets of dried fruit or nuts or fresh, whole fruit)?

  • Consider single-serving packets of dried fruit or nuts or fresh, whole fruit.

Do you occasionally have a sweet treat, such as a chocolate kiss or snack-size candy bar?

  • That’s OK! All foods in moderation can fit in a healthy diet.
