Healthy-ish Eating for Firefighters
“Healthy-ish Eating for Firefighters” will dispel the illusion that there is a “perfect diet” for all firefighters. Firefighters face a variety of challenges when it comes to eating well. Many dietitians will talk at an ideal level that unfortunately does not resonate with this population. This firefighter-specific approach will zone in on challenges and common gaps in nutrition discovered after 5 years of experience and hundreds of station visits. Understand the tangible and realistic nutrition interventions for structural firefighters. Discover tips and tricks for eating well on a 24-hour shift. Learn how to make healthier choices when packaged food or fast food are the only options available. The key to eating well in this career is understanding that there is a range of healthy eating, and consistently making a best effort is what counts. 
Learning Objectives/Outcomes: 
· Identify health risks and challenges of structural firefighters.
· Recall realistic interventions designed to improve firefighter nutrition choices.
