Tennessee Healthy Meetings Guidelines


Planning to order food for a meeting, conference or other work event? The Tennessee Department of Health wants to help you choose foods that are both delicious and healthy!

TDH nutrition specialists have developed guidelines to help you place food orders that will help keep you and your coworkers healthy at work. Foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products help to prevent many diseases. Heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes are the top causes of death in Tennessee and are largely affected by diet and lifestyle. What you eat plays a huge role in your overall health.

The TDH Healthy Meetings Guidelines include suggestions for breakfast, lunch and supper menus, along with drink selections and a section on boxed lunches. Select your meal from the tabs at left to find the recommendations. These guidelines are designed to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
