4 Ways to Implement Healthier Menus
by Terri Brownlee, Director of Wellness, Bon Appétit Management Company
1. Make healthful choices the easy (or default) choice
Instead of offering two Margherita pizzas—one made with whole-wheat crust and one made with plain crust—offer only one with whole-wheat crust.
2. Do some of the work for the consumer
Use stealth nutrition practices like adding sweet potatoes and kale to comfort food indulgences like macaroni and cheese.
3. Offer lean proteins, plentiful vegetables and whole grains
Diners in B&I want to eat well; set them up for success by providing the right ingredients.
4. Make it customizable
Healthy means different things to different people. Offer customizable dishes so that guests can meet their nutritional needs individually.
