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 Wakefield customers to make healthy choices.

Lisa Urbaczewski McKenna at Dockside has been working with Kara Showers, Mass in Motion-Melrose/Wakefield, to promote smaller portions, fruit and vegetable substitutions, and healthier drink options on the regular and kids menus.
