It could be argued that all social enterprises, at least in theory, are healthy social innovations. That is to say, they're good for people, the planet and the economy. But those featured here on SocialBusiness.org take it up a notch with nutrition, exercise and community involvement.

From fruit jerky products to seasonal eco eateries and South Asian-focused health food stores, most of the healthy social innovations on this top list center around food, whether it's vegan or vegetarian or carnivore, these meals typically have an ethical understanding. Sometimes that ethical practice comes through certification whether it's fair trade or organic but at other times it's a holistic consideration of labor and production.

Today, take a moment to pause during your busy schedule and consider how you can incorporate healthy social innovations, however big or small, into your life.
