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.

Noi Siwapornchai, manager at Phuket (www.phuketwakefield.com), has been working with Kara Showers, Mass in Motion-Melrose/Wakefield, to promote fresh vegetables and whole grain options, as well as smaller portions.

 

Please bring your family, friends and coworkers by soon to try this twist on Thai food.  Check out healthy offerings such as the steamed vegetable dumplings, Phuket’s seafood salad or Phuket’s BBQ Chicken, just to name a few.  The “half meal-to-go” option is now available.
