Show your clients that you’re an expert in this area by offering up great product ideas to jump start their wellness programs.

Good Eats The pitch: I’m constantly trying to teach my daughters the difference between junk food and healthy eats. (My youngest thinks fruit snacks are healthy because they contain the word “fruit.”) This Good Nutrition Pocket Slider from Norwood (asi/74400) takes the guesswork out of healthy eating. It includes a calorie counter, nutrition guide and food pyramid. Pricing starts as low as 74 cents. The front has plenty of room to imprint a personal message. The bottom Line: Great for mailings, health fairs and other health-focused events.
Shake It Up! The pitch: Remember when Richard Simmons first introduced The Salad Spray? He actually made eating salads seem more fun. This Salad Shake-Up from Fields Manufacturing (asi/54100) is a super-cool container for healthy eaters. It includes a removable dressing cup and fork and a custom imprint can be added. Pricing as low as $2.78. The bottom line: A perfect giveaway for health centers, gyms and grocery stores.
Forget Me Not The pitch: “Did you remember to take your calcium pill?” my mom asks me almost every day. Typically, the answer is “no.” Perhaps I’d be more vigilant about this if I had this Black Empty Plastic Pill Box or Pillbox Case from Admints & Zagabor (asi/31516). Pricing starts as low as 79 cents and includes a four-color process decal or one-color direct imprint. The bottom line: Fill these with sugar-free peppermints as an added bonus.
On-the-Go Workout The pitch: This New Balance PVC Free Yoga Mat & Bag from Leed’s (asi/66887) is great for business travelers and others who are on the go. The mat is ultra-soft, and the accompanying bag allows you to easily carry the mat from place to place. Pricing starts at $29.98. The bottom line: Companies can use this as a premium for those who reach various milestones in their wellness programs.
