Strategic Partner

The Monday Campaigns is a national movement backed by leading public health schools that dedicates the first day of every week to health. Every Monday, individuals and organizations join together to commit to healthy behaviors that help end chronic preventable diseases.
 
The Monday Campaigns is a non-profit public health initiative in association with Columbia Mailman School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Maxwell School at Syracuse. Our goal is to help end chronic preventable disease by offering a weekly prompt that can support people in starting and sustaining healthy behaviors.
 
The Monday movement has grown to include an impressive array of government and non-profit organizations, businesses, schools and universities, communities and media outlets.
 
We help organizations use Monday to increase the effectiveness of their own health initiatives. We do this by providing research, case studies, health-related content, marketing concepts and ready-to-scale programs. We don’t collect any fees or have licensing requirements. Our sole objective is to help organizations leverage Monday to end chronic preventable disease in the U.S.

It can be tempting to focus on just one variable when deciding if a food is healthy, but even calories don’t tell all. It’s important to also choose nutrient-dense foods: a high fiber, vitamin rich meal will keep you fuller, longer and help you eat less overall. Nutrition labels list how much of each nutrient is in a serving.

Use nutritional labels this week and see if you’re getting the most bang for your bite! Try replacing some of your empty calories with nutrient-dense foods.
