Colors of Summer Veggie and Fruit Challenge

Start roasting those Brussel sprouts because the monthlong Colors of Summer 28-Day Veggie and Fruit Challenge is back!

Find new ways to incorporate fruits and vegetables into your diet. Explore types of fruits and vegetables and their health benefits by participating in the Colors of Summer Veggie and Fruit Challenge from July 3-30.

This challenge is an honor-based, 28-day program designed to encourage participants to increase their fruit and vegetable intake, which helps to reduce the risk for heart disease and adult onset diabetes, and promotes overall good health.

Participants will receive an educational handout at the start of the program, as well as weekly email tips and trackers from our wellness partner Be Well Solutions.

Program Guidelines:

  • Aim for at least two servings of fruit daily.
  • Aim for at least three servings of vegetables daily.
  • Incorporate fruits and vegetables in a variety of colors.
  • Aim for at least one serving from every color category daily.

Participants will report their progress on a weekly basis using the trackers provided by Be Well Solutions. And, as always, we have prizes and incentives for our participants. Each week, participants will be eligible for a random drawing to keep you motivated and support your wellness goals. Winners will be announced throughout the challenge. 

So, let's explore the “Colors of Summer” together and join the 28-Day Veggie and Fruit Challenge today!

Registration accepted through June 27.

Note: This challenge is worth 20 Tier Two Wellness Your Way incentive points for full-time, benefits eligible employees participating in the Wellness Your Way incentive program. Employees must participate in all four weeks of this challenge to qualify for Wellness Your Way points.
