Employers share the financial burden of the impact of obesity-related illnesses through greater health care costs. Education at the workplace can reinforce the need for changes in lifestyle with the long-term benefit of reducing health care costs and improving productivity.

Employers can follow these easy steps to be advocates for the LINI movement:

  1. Create a nursing room so all mothers have the opportunity to continue breastfeeding when they return to work.
  2. Offer your employees an extra 15 minutes at lunch if they use that time for physical activity.
  3. Swap out the traditional vending machine choices for more healthful options.
