The Workplace Health Promotion project, operating in the precinct of the Local Health Authority of Bergamo, contemplates that the partaking Companies should develop specific activities ("good practices") in the thematic area of proper nutrition. Six best practices have been defined on the basis of: contextual data, actions deemed most effective by the scientific publications, the "Guidelines for a healthy diet for the Italian, population" released by the Italian National Research Institute for Food and Nutrition the "Directions for healthy snacks for adults" elaborated by the Italian Association of Dietetics and Clinical Nutrition, and the national project "Gaining Health". Twenty-six Companies have chosen to implement good practices in the area of proper nutrition. The results of the undertaken actions have been measured at the first Company which participated in this program, and have been obtained through the administration of a pre- and postintervention questionnaire. The collected data show the efficacy of the proposed practices in modifying some incorrect dietary habits.
