LiveWell Restaurant Program

Public health practitioners are increasingly concerned about the number of meals eaten outside the home, as they are often unhealthy; these meals can be high in fat, sodium and sugar and lack nutritious elements, such as fresh fruits and vegetables. Numerous studies have linked frequent eating out with obesity and other related health conditions. The LiveWell Restaurant Program helps consumers identify restaurants that offer healthier menu options.

The LiveWell Restaurant Program partners with many different types of restaurants to ensure residents can find healthy options when dining out. The program provides free technical assistance from our registered dietitian, who works with restaurants to tailor the program to a restaurant’s specific brand.

Are you a Restaurant Interested in Participating?

We welcome all restaurants looking to enhance their healthy menu items. Our partners are as diverse as they come—fast casual, fine dining, local and corporate—with a variety of cuisines and locations. Multi-location restaurants are welcome.

The LiveWell Restaurant Program provides services to help you offer customers healthy options. The program is free and includes a wide variety of services, such as:

  • Recipe modification and/or development to increase healthy options.
  • Recipe analysis for up to 10 percent of your current menu (analysis will meet the Menu Labeling Law requirements).
  • Staff training taught by our Registered Dietitian (low sodium, heart healthy, lower fat).
  • Promotional signage.
