Get adventurous this month – give your taste buds a treat as well as your feet. Set up a Food Exclusion Zone (FEZ) and make sure you walk at least 20 minutes when buying your lunch. All those sandwich shops round the corner are banned!
You may not purchase or eat your lunch within the FEZ.
Take a walk out and about, find some new spaces and discover the surrounding area.
A great way to #Try20 and discover some new food joints at the same time
Print a map and draw a line around the area to be your food exclusion zone (we recommend roughly one mile in diameter around your workplace).
Put the map up in a prominent place at work - the kitchen is probably best.
Let all staff know about the challenge by sending them a short email.
Encourage staff to use the stickers to mark good food places they find.

Sitting for long periods of time has been shown to dramatically increase your chances of suffering from mental and physical health problems.
Taking a break and getting some exercise in the middle of the day energizes you and refreshes your brain, increasing your productivity in the afternoon.
Our National Walking Month supporters, Westfield Health, have a fab Walking Lunch Challenge. See if the extra steps you clock up, when you're outside of the Food Exclusion Zone make your workplace a winner.
