Get Healthy with Better Eating Habits

Get Healthy with Better Eating Habits | Cone Health Employee Health & Wellness

While research studies show a strong link between good nutrition and health, 6 out of 10 American adults have at least one diet-related chronic disease, according to USDA’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Unhealthy eating habits can significantly decrease productivity and cause fatigue, a particular concern for employees in industrial or transportation industries.

“While people often realize they should eat healthier, they may not understand how much poor eating habits can contribute to chronic disease,” says Kate Watts, a Cone Health registered dietitian nutritionist.

“When we empower people to make healthier food choices and give them strategies to achieve nutritional goals that work with their busy lives, we can improve their quality of life and well-being,” Watts adds.

To encourage healthy eating habits, Cone Health offers many virtual options, including:
