Step 4: Canteen Activities
Simple interactive sessions to increase awareness to employees on targeted health topics.

Few themes include:

Low sodium and low sugar intake: Employees get to match the food pictures with the correct sodium and sugar content.

Low fat, low sodium and low sugar: First session will give participants the knowledge on fats, sugars, and sodium, their difference and impact on health. Then through a game of "Spin the Wheel", employees will spin the wheel and answer questions on intake and food selection respectively. It enables participants to interact in a more fun and friendly manner about healthier food choices and learning how to adapt them.

Fruits & vegetables: This activity will provide information about the nutritional importance of this food group in our diet. A presentation will be done on the topic and employees can play a crossword puzzle on fruits & vegetables.
