Our Fire Fighter Nutrition Campaign is generating awareness of the importance of nutrition and its role in fire fighter health. This isn’t about short-term fixes; it’s about creating lifelong change that lasts!
We invite you to participate in the Fire Fighter Nutrition Healthy Habits Challenge beginning September 1, 2020. You’ll learn how to create meaningful goals and develop and focus on one habit at a time on your journey to healthy lifestyle changes.
How It Works
Each week for the duration of this challenge, participants will focus on one specific healthy habit:
Week 1: Track your food for real-time information about your current eating habits.
Week 2: Eat mostly whole, real food.
Week 3: Focus on adding in something that’s good for you instead of on foods that you can’t have.
Week 4: Work on consistency and recognizing the impact your habits have on long-term health.
How to Participate
What You Can Expect:
- Posts throughout the week, including recipe ideas and weekly recap videos.
- Real-life strategies and tips to support you right now.
- Resources and education to help create and maintain healthy eating habits that support fire fighter training, work demands, fitness goals and long-term health.
Please invite other IAFF members from your local or department to join this group. Together, we can share the importance of fire fighter health, nutrition, movement and resilience. We are here to support fire fighter health, wellness and resilience through nutrition practices and healthy lifestyle change.
