Healthy Options Restaurants

Restaurant food, whether fast food or fine dining, typically has more calories, fat and sodium than foods prepared at home.  Eating out has been linked with overweight and obesity, which is why Eastern Shore Healthy Communities has been working with local restaurants to encourage them to offer healthier meal options for adults and children.
