Restaurants that participated in a community-wide program designed to improve the heart-healthiness of rural restaurant food choices were more likely to implement healthy practices and provide healthier food and beverage options, according to results published in Public Health Nutrition.
The program, which was conducted as part of the Hearts Beat Back: The Heart of New Ulm Project, showed that of the restaurants that participated in rural Minnesota, there was an increase in availability of fruit, vegetables and grains as well as a reduction in portion size.
