Nutrition consultant Healthy Dining rolls out new mobile site

Nutrition consultant Healthy Dining has launched a new mobile site that makes finding healthful menu options easier and more convenient than ever before.

The program features more than 4,000 menu items served at more than 60,000 participating restaurants across the nation and arms users with the most comprehensive database of healthful meals handpicked by registered dietitians based on qualifying nutrition criteria that emphasize lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, whole grains and unsaturated fats.

“This new mobile site makes it easy to dine out, especially during the holidays, without overindulging or feeling guilty,” says Anita Jones-Mueller, MPH, president of San Diego-based Healthy Dining, co-developer of the National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell program. “It’s hard to know how the calories, fat and sodium add up in restaurant meals. Our dietitians remove the guesswork, so you can easily find the best choices to order.”

According to Dr. Gary Bennett, associate professor of psychology, neuroscience and global health at Duke University’s Global Health Institute in Durham, N.C., 82 percent of restaurants provide caloric information on their websites, but only 25 percent of them offer the information in a mobile-friendly format to make it easily accessible to consumers away from their homes or offices.

“Getting nutrition and calorie information once seated at the restaurant may be a step too late for those diners looking for healthier options in the midst of their busy lifestyles,” Dr. Bennett said. “A seemingly small tech shift like what HealthyDiningFinder.com has done with mobile-formatting can go a long way toward improving the health of restaurant-loving Americans.”

Dr. James O. Hill, executive director of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at the
University of Colorado, added: “This is one of those small yet mighty steps that naturally unite health, modern lifestyles and dining out for the betterment of all Americans. We need the healthy choice to be the easy choice, and this digital advancement from the leaders at Healthy Dining brings us closer to that reality.”
