These guidelines are intended to help CHSC coordinators consider the range of settings where they can influence healthy food options, and to showcase useful resources and tools. Champions within an organization can also use these guidelines to improve their worksite nutritional environments.

Implementing Healthier Food Service Guidelines in Hospital and Federal Worksite Cafeterias

To better understand the facilitators and barriers of implementing healthy food service guidelines, CDC’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity (DNPAO) supported a project by the North Carolina Institute of Public Health (NCIPH) to examine five hospitals and four federal worksite food service operators across the country. The findings are published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics and describe the experiences of food service operators in implementing healthy food service guidelines and identifies implementation facilitators and barriers. NCIPH conducted additional follow-up with food service operators that were most successful in implementing the food service guidelines and published five Success Stories at the following websites that highlight the implementation challenges and solutions and synthesized keys to success for each individual hospital or federal worksite food service operator.

Unfortunately, the food served at meetings is typically calorie-dense and nutrient-poor, and day-long conferences set aside little time for physical activity. CSPI’s infographic helps encourage and inform organizations looking to provide a healthier meeting environment. View the resource here: Healthy Meeting Hacks Infographic Final
