The restaurants listed in the Healthy Eating Guide 2014 have self-declared their healthier choices by identifying menu items and the number of calories in each one.   Some calorie counts were calculated with the assistance of the Community Health Foundation, which used the following websites as information sources

www.nutritiondata.self.com

www.myplate.gov

www.healthydiningfinders.com

www.myfitnesspal.com

Our hope for how the information in the guide will be used: 

The Healthy Eating Guide 2014 is intended to give readers information about menu choices they will find while dining at local restaurants in the Clark and Champaign County area.

The Healthy Eating Guide 2014 is not intended to direct the food choices of the reader.  The guide was developed with the idea that if people are aware of what they are eating, they are able to make more informed choices, both at restaurants while dining out, and at home.

The Healthy Eating Guide 2014 is not meant to provide comprehensive nutritional guidance.  Readers who are interested in detailed, in-depth dietary information are encouraged to seek it by accessing information either on line or through many of the excellent sources available through printed publications, or by consulting with area professionals.  The guide is simply a result of a desire among several local Clark County restaurants to participate in a partnership with public and non-profit agencies and other local businesses to encourage healthier eating among people in our community.   It is meant to be a small step towards the possibility of a collaborative community approach to health and wellness.
