The Healthy Dining Guide was developed as part of the Healthy Dining Matters! Restaurant Program (HDM)! pilot developed by Harris County Public Health & Environmental Services.
The mission of the Healthy Dining Matters! Restaurant Program is to lower rates of obesity in Harris County by encouraging local independent, “Mom & Pop” restaurants in promoting healthier options for adults and children.
Currently 2 in 3 adults and 1 in 3 children are overweight and obese in Harris County.
The purpose of this guide is to promote healthier options at fast food and restaurant establishments in the Pasadena area, especially local independent restaurants participating in the HDM! Restaurant Program to help community members eat healthy when dining out.
All nutrition information was found on www.healthydiningfinder.com or the restaurant’s online nutrition information, except HDM! Participating restaurants, which was calculated by the HDM! Nutrition Consultant.
