Municipalities across DuPage County are working to make an impact on strategic issues. In Lombard, the Healthy Lombard coalition is working with restaurants to create and promote healthier menu options. In an effort to increase healthy eating and reduce obesity, restaurants are improving the local food environment by adopting criteria, developed by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist from one of Healthy Lombard Partners, Revolution Physical Therapy and Weight Loss, for a healthier dining options.
The menus includes having food options that are low-calorie, have beneficial ingredients, and that are low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium.
Two restaurants located in Lombard have already agreed to participate and display the Healthy Lombard designation in the restaurant for customers to identify.
By implementing strategies to increase and promote healthy eating options, Healthy Lombard is helping the community reach intended outcomes and advance the well-being of DuPage County.
