Healthy choices were on the dinner menu for South Jersey residents as Live Healthy Vineland (LHV) hosted its inaugural Healthy Dining Week during March 6 – 12, 2017 at 24 different restaurants.
As one component of LHV’s Healthy Food Network, the Healthy Dining Initiative is an effort to promote healthy lifestyle choices by focusing on behavioral changes at retail food establishments. “We want families to see the healthy choices available at a variety of establishments,” said David Calderetti, project director for NJPHK-Vineland.
Residents were encouraged to support local businesses who joined in the Healthy Dining Initiative. Each participating restaurant offered healthy dining specials on their menus. While dining, customers found table toppers with information on healthy options; placemats with games for children to play and learn about healthier food choices; and menu stickers indicating healthy items offered.
The following restaurants participated in Healthy Dining Week:
Friends and Family Diner
La Cabana Deli Express
Kura Thai and Sushi
Manny & Vic’s Pizzeria
La Cabana Del Tio Tom
Golden Palace Diner
Landis Pig Roast
