Start! Eating Healthy Day: Wednesday, November 3

 

Start! Eating Healthy Day can be the first day of a healthy new outlook

The American Heart Association's Start! initiative is all about good cardiovascular health through making great lifestyle choices, emphasizing the benefits of walking and proper diet. The Start! Heart Walk, which raised $615,000 for the fight against heart disease and stroke, was in late September. Now it's time to focus on food—choosing nutritious items and preparing them in ways that promote heart health. Heart disease and stroke are the nation's No. 1 and No. 3 killers. They also contribute to absenteeism, lost productivity and high healthcare costs, and that's bad for businesses and the people who run and work for them. Start! is a free, workplace-based campaign to help employers help employees toward optimum heart health. Start! is a win for everyone. And on November 3, Start! Eating Healthy Day, that win begins with breakfast.
