Groundbreaking MyMenu Tech Nutrition/Menu Platform – Be among the first restaurants in the country to offer your guests 21st century technology to customize your menu based on their personal health needs and lifestyle preferences. For example, which of your menu items contain under 750 calories and more than 20 grams of fiber with no gluten or dairy (or any preferences indicated).
Nutrition Calculations – Healthy Dining will calculate nutrition information for your menu items – your entire menu or just a few items. A turkey sandwich or entrée salad may seem to be an obviously healthier choice, but adding nutrition information for such items emphasizes the point by highlighting your healthier choices and demonstrating that you care about the health of your patrons.
Gluten & Allergen Identification – Gluten and allergens have become an increasing concern for many customers. Restaurants interested in adding or promoting menu selections suitable for those concerned about gluten and allergens needs to make sure that any claims made are correct and not misleading. Added ingredients could include gluten and allergens without a restaurant’s knowledge. Healthy Dining will help to protect your brand by analyzing all ingredients for the presence of gluten and/or allergens, address cross contact, and make sure that any claims are appropriate and correctly worded.
Vegetarian & Vegan Identification – Similar to gluten and allergens, vegetarian and vegan identification is becoming more of a factor these days. Recipe analysis by Healthy Dining will ensure that animal products (including dairy for vegan claims) aren’t hidden in a restaurant’s vegetarian/vegan dishes.
Healthy Recipe Consulting – Healthy Dining will work with you to design or rework recipes to be more healthful. Recipes can be modified to reduce fat, lower sodium or increase fiber to a recipe while maintaining flavor profiles. Making recipes healthier can often actually save money! Turn menu favorites into healthier choices!
Website Promotion – HealthyDiningFinder.com enables health- and weight-conscious diners to easily find restaurants that offer healthy menu selections. Healthy Dining will analyze four or five of a restaurant’s healthier menu items and promote your restaurant and its healthier menu choices on HealthyDiningFinder.com. Consumers can find participating restaurants in any U.S. ZIP code and view their healthy menu choices along with corresponding nutrition information. The site and participating restaurants are publicized through health-related organizations and health professionals, online, and through social media.
