We want health; we want convenience. Sometimes that can seem like a tall order but there is an online tool that will help you find healthy restaurant choices in your area. It can help your family stay healthy even on those night when you just can’t find the time or energy to prepare and cook a meal.
Healthy Dining Finder is a free tool. Part of the initial funding came from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the focus has been on pointing consumers to the healthiest choices ever since. Here is their approach:
The dietitian-approved HEALTHY DINING choices emphasize lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, whole grains and unsaturated fats and meet calorie, fat and saturated fat criteria. A new Sodium Savvy platform helps consumers find restaurant meals with less than 750 mg. of sodium. HEALTHY DINING's new Kids LiveWell program, in collaboration with the National Restaurant Association, identifies healthier menu choices for kids at restaurants nationwide.
But enough about the history and purpose – the important factor is that it’s easy to use and will help you connect to restaurants in your area that have healthy items on their menus. That’s part of the key too. The entire menu may not be healthy but Healthy Dining Finder will highlight the chocies that are best for your family.
