Healthy Base Initiative
Initial Observations
• Dining Facilities provide some healthy options, however, most
have limited hours of operation and are only open to authorized
patrons
• Many have closed due to budgetary constraints and low
utilization rates; overall customer satisfaction remains low
• Food portfolio requires significant changes in order to make
healthy options easily available; based on results of m-NEAT
• Requires engagement with all food services providers including
Dining Facilities, Exchanges and MWR
• Vending/fast food outlets scored very low and require attention
• Initiated comprehensive food study to determine future options
• Defense Advisory Committee on Tobacco established to provide
SECDEF range of options going forward
