The Texas Department of Health has a nice website for Worksite Wellness -
you may be able to
get some ideas from the information they provide.
I'm sure you're familiar with California's (but just in case)
"Project LEAN" (Leaders Encouraging Activity & Nutrition) which
has a variety of goodies and nutrition education resources.
Take a look!
