Philadelphia, PA, June 19, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Five new, local Philadelphia restaurants have joined the 50+ restaurant locations in the city participating in the Healthy Dining Program and offering dietitian-approved menu choices. These restaurants teamed up with Healthy Dining’s team of registered dietitians to provide their guests with accurate nutrition information for their healthiest menu selections.
As more and more restaurants join the Healthy Dining Program, individual owners and operators are looking to provide their guests with the same nutrition information often displayed by larger chains. Each of the qualifying Healthy Dining menu items is analyzed and dietitian-approved, and the nutrition facts can be found on HealthyDiningFinder.com and the yumPower mobile app. “We want to make it easy for guests to find accurate nutrition information while making decisions about dining out at any restaurant,” says Anita Jones-Mueller, President and Founder of Healthy Dining. “I’m so excited to see more private operators participating.” The newest Philadelphia restaurants are:
· Green Line Cafés
· Manakeesh Café
· Gia Pronto
· RAW Sushi & Sake Lounge
· Top Tomato
These restaurants are joining the over 400 restaurant brands already participating the Healthy Dining Program. Philadelphia restaurants will also be featured in a state-of-the art mobile application developed by Viocare, a Princeton, NJ health technologies company, with funding from the National Cancer Institute.
To find the dietitian-approved menu choices at these and other restaurants in Philadelphia, and across the United States, visit HealthyDiningFinder.com.
