Watching what you eat
The Dining Out Locally initiative is reflective of the mandate for national chains to provide nutritional information to consumers. Registered dietician and co-chair of the Dining Out committee for healthy communities in Alachua County, Kathryn Parker says, locally owned restaurants will offer residents access to the same information as chain restaurants.
The first phase of the pilot published nutrition information analyses from four locally-owned and operated restaurants in Alachua County. The participating restaurants include East End Eatery, The Jones, Ti Amo, and Embers Wood Grill.
The second phase of the project is underway and will feature five different restaurants. Parker says, plans are to expand the project to include at least 25 locally owned and operated restaurants in Alachua County.
