Make Every Day Healthy Lunch Day

Each September, the American Diabetes Association encourages everyone to celebrate National Healthy Lunch Day. 

Why is Healthy Lunch Day so important? Many of us are uncertain about what’s best to eat, what’s healthful and what’s not. 

Often our food choices are full of calories, yet lack the vitamins and minerals that we need for energy and to feel our best. 

At BCBSAZ, our wellness goal is to promote good nutrition as part of a healthy lifestyle, and help everyone make better food choices.
