Healthy Eating Out: Raising the Bar for Nutrition at Restaurants
Register here
December 17th, 2:00-3:00 pm EST
Americans today spend nearly half their food dollars at restaurants and other food service establishments. Eating out contributes to poor diet quality and obesity. Restaurant foods and beverages often contain high levels of calories, saturated fat, sugars, and salt. Restaurant practices, like large portions, upselling, free refills of sugary beverages, and unhealthy default side dishes, are not conducive to healthy eating.
The webinar presenters will describe policy and program options for improving restaurant food and beverages. The webinar will give an overview of a novel set of restaurant performance standards, developed by a group of experts through the RAND Corporation, that include guidelines for healthier adult and children’s meals and healthier restaurant practices.  Presenters will discuss two existing healthier restaurant programs, including their strengths, challenges, and advice to others interested in creating similar programs.
