Mercy's Net Nutrition program helps staff make healthier food choices


Mercy's Net Nutrition program helps staff make healthier food choices
Sioux City Journal

"It's important for us to have opportunities for people to make quick decisions on what a healthy item is, and if they want to dig a little bit deeper, find the nutrition on it," said Tracey Badar, director of nutritional care services at Mercy. "This program really lets us have aha moments in decisions we make when we eat."Mercy employees spend 8 to 12 hours a day at the hospital. Most grab two of their meals from the cafeteria. That's why Badar said Mercy wants to take care of its staff by helping them make healthier decisions.Natalie Olorundami Hughes, a Mercy wellness specialist, said Net Nutrition is an "amazing" tool for both patients and employees. She said she will utilize it in her wellness coaching."I think it's awesome. Especially now, everyone's tracking food. It's almost like a must," she said.
