Restaurants have plenty of ways of enticing customers to come in for a meal. Whether they offer a daily special, hand out samples in the mall or have friendly costumed mascots like clowns and cows, they try to differentiate themselves from the rest of the pack.
Now, local restaurants have another way to stand out in the crowd. The new Eat Well Galveston County program initiated by the Galveston County Health District puts a special seal of healthy approval on restaurants that offer healthy choices. Consumers who see the Eat Well Galveston County logo are assured the restaurant displaying it has at least three meals less than 750 calories, doesn’t use trans fats and includes simply-prepared fruits and vegetables among its side dishes.
