|Reviewers Comments: ||The kit includes thirteen components that can help improve the food and physical activity at the worksite. Each tested component is intended to be easy to plan, implement and evaluate.
Component topics include: wellness committees, healthy meetings, healthy dining options, water consumption, food in vending machines, fresh farm produce from local farmers, a breastfeeding friendly worksite, physical activity, physical activity clubs, and worksite stairwells. Not all components will work for every person and all worksites; however, they can be easily modified.
The kit begins with a "Check for Health", evaluating workplace attitudes and programs/services available for employees. Some of the components include guidelines for healthy eating and suggested food and beverage standards.
The kit also includes a 10-week web-based wellness program, called Take Action! (http://www.takeactionca.cdph.ca.gov/). Take Action! is a comprehensive program that uses many of the resources from the Fit Business Kit.
The California Fit Business Kit includes a resources section (PDF|1.91MB) that contains sample policies, printable handouts, and other detailed information.
