Worksite Wellness is Good for Business

Businesses play an important role in promoting health and reducing the risk of chronic disease. Over 60 percent of Vermont adults employed outside the home are either overweight or obese, and over half have at least one chronic condition. Chronic disease places a significant financial burden on employers in health care costs and lost productivity. Worksite wellness programs help improve the bottom line.

Eating Well With WIC

WIC is your go-to resource for eating well, staying active and being healthy. WIC supports you with tips for healthier eating, breastfeeding and being physically active, along with providing wholesome food choices for your family. WIC foods are changing with the times, offering more whole grains, fruits and vegetables, lower-fat dairy and protein options. And, shopping for WIC foods at the grocery store with your eWIC card means choice, convenience and flexibility.
