D’Amici’s Bakery joins the Mass in Motion Healthy Dining Program

(MELROSE, MA) MAY 18, 2015….D’Amici’s Bakery, located at 462 Main Street in Melrose, joins the Mass in Motion Healthy Dining Program, which is an initiative of the City of Melrose and Town of Wakefield Health Departments and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH).

Restaurant foods tend to be higher in calories, fat and sodium and portions are bigger than food prepared at home. But more and more customers are looking for healthier options while dining out.  The Mass in Motion Healthy Dining Program works with local restaurants to make healthy food and drink options available to customers. By offering healthy entrees and side dishes local restaurants are making it easier for Melrose and Wakefield customers to make healthy choices.

D’Amici’s Bakery offers hot oatmeal, many fresh vegetables options on their breakfast and lunch menus, ½ soup & ½ salad combinations with delicious soups such as minestrone.

Smaller portions are possible here as well.  “We don’t just cater to the sweet tooth; our busiest time of day is lunch. So come on in and enjoy a salad or some soup indoors or out on our patio!” said Deanna Gregory, manager at D’Amici’s Bakery of Melrose.

D’Amici’s Bakery joins Petrone’s, Toobas Café and Cappa’s Trackside Kitchen as the fourth Mass in Motion Healthy Dining establishment in Melrose.

If you are interested in joining the Healthy Dining program in Melrose or Wakefield, please contact Kara Showers at 781-979-4123 or kshowers@cityofmelrose.org.
