HealthyDiningFinder.com helps consumers get "sodium savvy"

While a holistic approach to health and nutrition is often preferred, some consumers are making food and dining choices based on more specific dietary needs and preferences, such as watching their sodium intake.

 

National Restaurant Association partner site HealthyDiningFinder.com was featured on St. Louis television station KSDK Thursday in a viewer question segment on how to find lower-sodium options when dining out. Check out the video on the station's website!

HealthyDiningFinder.com helps diners identify better-for-you options at tens of thousands of restaurant locations nationwide, and its recently launched "Sodium Savvy" feature highlights lower-sodium options at about 10,000 locations.

Healthy Dining's Sodium Savvy choices contain 750 mg. of sodium or less. Items in the program also meet Healthy Dining’s criteria for calories, fat, saturated fat and include a lean protein and a fruit, vegetable and/or whole grain component.

The Association’s “What’s Hot in 2011” survey of more than 1,500 professional chefs finds that more that nearly three-quarters of chefs say nutrition as a culinary theme will be a trend in 2011. In addition, 51 percent of the chefs say lower-sodium items will be a hot menu trend this year.

The National Restaurant Association is a founding partner on the HealthyDiningFinder.com website. Association members receive a discount when joining the program and using Healthy Dining’s nutrition analysis services.
