Hawaii launches Choose Healthy Now campaign

Healthier food options are now being offered in several cafeterias and snack shops across Oahu.

OAHU, Hawaii—Healthier food options are now being offered at several state cafeterias and snack shops across Oahu as part of a new state worksite wellness initiative.

Choose Healthy Now also features specialized labels that rank food and beverage options in terms of nutritional value.

“People who work in government buildings on Oahu will have the option of having healthier choices using traffic light symbol — green for go, yellow for go slow, and red for uh-oh,” said Lola Irvin, Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Division.
