Eating out accounts for a third of Americans’ calories and contributes to poor nutrition and obesity. Restaurant foods and beverages often contain high levels of calories, saturated fat, sugars, and salt, and not enough fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. And restaurant practices, like large portions, upselling, free refills of sugary beverages, and unhealthy default side dishes, make healthy eating a challenge.

Join @MomsRising and @CSPI for this week's #FoodFri tweetchat on healthy options for eating out!

Learn how to eat healthy when you dine out and share your tips, strategies and resources this Friday, June 27, 2014, at 1 p.m., EST on Twitter. Just make sure to add #FoodFri to your tweet. We wouldn't want to miss it!

CSPI | MomsRising.org

 

Since 1971, CSPI has been a strong advocate for nutrition and health, food safety, alcohol policy, and sound science.

Founded by executive director Michael Jacobson, Ph.D. and two other scientists, CSPI carved out a niche as the organized voice of the American public on nutrition, food safety, health and other issues during a boom of consumer and environmental protection awareness in the early 1970s. CSPI has long sought to educate the public, advocate government policies that are consistent with scientific evidence on health and environmental issues, and counter industry’s powerful influence on public opinion and public policies.

Connect with CSPI on their website, Twitter and Facebook.
