It’s Time to Change One Thing

The #ChangeOneThing truck

Eating healthy all the time can seem like a major lifestyle change, but we’ve simplified it for you: Change One Thing. Instead of trying to change your whole diet overnight, choose instead to Change One Thing each day. Choose a glass of water instead of a soda with your lunch, or choose a ripe summer peach as a snack instead of a bag of chips. Changing one thing is something you can control in the moment and will eventually lead toward a lifelong habit. By changing one thing you’re  working to improve your health and overall lifestyle without denying yourself the joy of eating the foods you love.


To help teens in the movement to Change One Thing, Food Bank for New York City has rolled out their Change One Thing truck. It’s the big blue truck with the orange slices handing out free healthy snacks; keep an eye out for it in your neighborhood! Although it may look like an ice cream truck the Change One Thing truck provides snacks that are healthier and equally enjoyable. And did I mention they’re also free! Snacks include sunflower seeds and dried fruit, and you’ll also get a free recipe booklet designed just for teens. The truck can be found at recreational centers, basketball courts and pools throughout New York City until the end of the summer. To find out where the Change One Thing truck will be today follow @FoodBank4NYC on twitter, locations are announced daily.
