"Colorful Choices" Nutrition Challenge

Colorful Choices
Sponsored by UnitedHealthcare, the "Colorful Choices" Nutrition Challenge is a six-week online nutrition challenge designed to help employees "put produce first" by adding more fruits and vegetables to their diet. Colorful Choices participants earn points for each produce serving they eat, with a goal of eating at least five servings of produce, with a minimum of three vegetables, each day. Forget calorie counting, fat-gram tabulating, weighing, and measuring. By spreading daily food selections across the rainbow of colors, participants are guaranteed the best produce has to offer — vitamins, fiber, phytochemicals — for better health. They also will have access to daily tips, fantastic recipes, inspiring articles and motivating daily emails.
