The Resources You Need for a Healthier Menu

Consumers are more concerned with nutrition than ever before. The National Restaurant Association reports in “Trending Healthy” that more than seven in 10 adults are trying to eat healthier at restaurants than they did two years ago, with more than eight in 10 restaurants saying their guests pay more attention to the nutritional content of food. In the “What’s Hot 2017 Culinary Forecast,” the NRA also names nutrition as a top-10 industry trend.

Restaurants that include healthier dishes on the menu can excite customers and drive increased loyalty, but managing ingredients and dishes in the kitchen can create strain for the budget and employees. Staying competitive in today’s market means that restaurants must include more healthy options. Though serving healthier fare can create budgetary and labor strain, vendor partners are available for advice, ideas, and support to make the process easy. Here are some helpful vendor resources for your healthy menu.
