Participation in Breastfeeding Welcome Here
The Louisiana Breastfeeding Coalition encourages businesses to support employees and patrons who breastfeed or pump milk to feed their babies. The Breastfeeding Welcome Here campaign is a great way to start showing support!

0 sodas or sweetened beverages per day
This WellSpot promotes the 5-2-1-0 program in at least two ways in its facility.
