Guidelines for Healthy Meetings

The New York State Department of Health has adopted the National Alliance for Nutrition and Activity (NANA) Healthy Meeting Guidelines for foods, physical activity, tobacco-free environments, and waste reduction. The “Standard” and “Superior” levels of recommendations are designed to provide healthy food and beverage options to help people meet nutrition recommendations; provide physical activity opportunities that are relevant to the audience and environment and will help people achieve at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day; provide a tobacco-free environment; and prioritize sustainable practices when possible, by minimizing waste, encouraging recycling, and sourcing products from sustainable producers.
