Eat Smart Restaurant Week is coming to Putnam County. From Sept. 7 through Sept. 21, participating restaurants will offer two to three delicious and healthy menu entrees that make the best of fresh ingredients in appropriate portion sizes.
Health Department nutritionists will work with restaurant chefs to perfect the entrees of their own choosing and ensure they meet healthy guidelines for fat, calories and sodium. To date, over 40 local food establishments have signed up to participate.
With the increasing concern for weight management and health, the ultimate purpose of the two-week event is for residents to enjoy a wonderful dining experience, and at the same time, have an opportunity to learn about healthy eating.
