Help make the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice! 

Sometimes you just need a quick reminder to take the stairs or to choose a healthier snack. re:TH!NK can help with Point of Decision Prompts (PODP). Making a better choice is as easy as reading a reminder prompt right where a choice is made. re:TH!NK's PODP Toolkit has several easy-to-post options to remind people to take the stairs, park further from the door and pick healthy fruits and veggies. There are kid-friendly prompts too suitable for a school, daycare, or the home (right next to the snack drawer).
