Published in FSD Update

We spoke to operators to get 25 tips from their successful health and wellness programs.

Integrate MyFitnessPal: Like many schools we encourage customers to track their caloric intake using MyFitnessPal. We actually added QR codes to the majority of our items so when students are using the MyFitnessPal app on their phones, they can just scan the item and it’s automatically placed in their daily food diary. This has been so successful the women’s basketball team approached us to train their athletes on how to use the program. They are doing an experiment to see how eating healthier will affect the team’s performance.
