Start a Breakfast Challege!

The perfect way to start your wellness program is with a breakfast challenge. Create a handout for employees to record how many times they ate breakfast for one month. Employees that reach 80% or more are eligible to receive a give away such as hat, mug, or T-shirt with Employee Breakfast Champion Printed on it!

Suggest Menu ideas such as:

Whole Grain toast with peanut butter and raisins
Whole Grain bran muffins (low calorie)
Oatmeal with brown sugar and bananas
Healthy Cold Cereal with 10 grams or less of sugar per serving.
Whole Grain Toast, turkey sausage, and low fat cheese slice with tomatoes
1/4 avocado with cottage cheese
Boiled, scrambled or easy side up egg with whole grain toast
Yogurt Smoothie with OJ, yogurt and fresh fruit

Breakfast challenges can be a great hit with employees!Check out this web site for lots of great recipe ideas: http://health.discovery.com/national-body-challenge/recipes/?category=Heart-Healthy&when=Breakfast
