Themes and Ideas

Run a campaign that focuses on all aspects of nutrition. Eat Right presented by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics provides key messages, event ideas, promotional materials and more. Unlock the Power of Food is a campaign for National Nutrition Month 2018 presented by the Dieticians of Canada.

Do a Water Challenge throughout the month with a special event and prizes on World Water Day. The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention provides information on the health benefits of daily water consumption.

Some of the free resources available include backdrops for photos/selfies where staff can add their photo to a collection of those who "Stand Up for Someone's Rights Today". There are also videos and social media strategies you can use. You could also encourage your staff to take the pledge at the bottom of these webpages which includes:

  • I will respect your rights regardless of who you are. I will uphold your rights even when I disagree with you.
  • When anyone's human rights are denied, everyone's rights are undermined, so I will STAND UP.
  • I will raise my voice. I will take action. I will use my rights to stand up for your rights.

Values shape the goals that are important to us, our behaviours, and the manner in which we interact with others.

This Take Your Break activity considers how water can improve energy and well-being at work.

We all need time to refresh and refocus if we want to stay healthy and productive. Taking your breaks can actually improve both your well-being and the quality of your work. Check out Take Your Break activities which can help you to energize, calm your mind, or relax your body - depending on what you need each day. Choose from over 50 activities to find ones that you and your co-workers might enjoy. It is also important to remember that what we consume on break time matters. Use the 80/20 rule where at least 80% of what you eat is nutritious.
