Restaurant Revolution: Healthier Menus MAKE Healthier Profits

I was speaking with a friend the other day who has an 8-year-old in school and we spoke about the food that is found in schools. Yes, although we are on the verge of making positive changes with regard to providing better nutrition in schools, there still is resistance. Kids still have a strong influence from television, their parents and even other kids. My friend even mentioned how going to restaurants can be "tricky" when ordering for her child because many of the "go to" items on the kids menu isn't very nutritionally sound.

And for every nutritionist (including myself) and every dietician or healthcare professional that I speak with regarding food, the bottom line is that there needs to be better balance, better portion control, healthier choices and reasonably priced food that won't break the bank. If going to a restaurant with the family means "splurging" and getting extra sauce, more fries or even soda, it looks like there could be more positive change in restaurants too. 

At last, restaurant owners can now reasonably make wiser and healthier choices for their menus without fear of losing everything. There is no doubt that a restaurant revolution is going on and its time to join in....
