That's why we truly are the one place Where Ice Cream Makes The Meal®.
Healthy Dining's expert staff of registered dietitians and master's level health/nutrition professionals consults with each restaurant to find menu items that meet the nutrition criteria outlined below, which are based on many of the recommendations of leading health organizations. Healthy Dining's nutrition staff reviews all menu items before posting them on the site to determine levels of calories, fat, saturated fat, sodium and other nutrients.
Deep fried items (i.e., egg rolls, chicken fingers, tostada shells, etc.) are excluded from the website, except for very small amounts of garnishes, such as wonton strips.
Are these items "healthy?"
