2015 The Stop Light Challenge - Joseph D'Alessandro

The aim of this challenge was to encourage the employees of Ithaca College to make healthy choices in their everyday life. Each week information was provided about making healthier choices in the selected area of nutrition.  Areas that are a main issue in today’s society are a lack of vegetables, unhealthy drink choices, insufficient or improper protein choices, making poor choices in snack foods, and either not eating breakfast or not making healthy choices for breakfast.  This Challenge helped educate employees of IC and gave them the tools to make these healthy choices every day and sustain a healthier lifestyle.
