Research has shown that good nutrition can help lower the risk of many chronic diseases including heart disease, stroke, some cancers, diabetes, and osteoporosis. A workplace nutrition program encourages healthy eating among all employees, emphasizing fruits and vegetables and whole grain products; low fat dairy products, lean meats, poultry, fish, and legumes; and small amounts of salt, sugar, and saturated fat. 

Research has shown that a healthy diet and good nutrition can:

 

  • Promote weight management and reduce the risk of obesity

  • Reduce the risk of developing high cholesterol, or reduce cholesterol in those who already have high cholesterol  

  • Reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, and

  • Reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure or reduce blood pressure in those who already have high blood pressure 

 

  • Counseling interventions help individuals acquire the skills, motivation, and support they need to alter their eating and food preparation habits.  Counseling advice includes self-monitoring, overcoming barriers to selecting healthy foods, goal-setting, shopping and food preparation, role playing, and social support

  •  

  • Health risk appraisals (HRA) or employee health surveys should be used in combination with individualized clinical assessment, counseling on nutrition, and follow-up for health behavior change.
