Introducing We Choose Health OntariOWe Choose Health Ontario
A Healthy Restaurant Dining Initiative

Anyone who has ever tried to lower their fat intake or shed a few pounds understands the challenges eating at a restaurant can bring. One meal out can derail our best-laid plans when it comes to healthy eating. It is not only that restaurant fare is often higher in salt and fat; we simply tend to eat too much when we dine out.

Is it possible to eat healthy when eating out? The Ontario County Health Collaborative hopes its new partnership with area restaurants will give county residents the opportunity to find out. Participating restaurants have agreed to provide healthy options to their customers and assist with raising community awareness about the impact of diet on chronic diseases, particularly obesity and high blood pressure.

Look for initiative signage at your favorite dining spot and ask your server about available healthy options. Read more...

People with EV-D68 may have body aches, runny nose, cough, sore throat, fatigue and in some cases fever. Most people who get EV-D68 recover on their own. A few go on to develop severe illness that requires hospitalization. These are the ones we tend to hear about in the news. Read more...
