Would you be more likely to eat at a restaurant if it had a local ‘seal of approval’ for its healthy options?

What's all this talk about eating at restaurants that have seals? I I don't think we should be eating seals.

very amusing.

"Tastes like chicken" though I'm sure.

The real key here should be how often we eat out. If one dines out once or twice a week, there should be an awareness of the need to balance one's diet with what one eats at home. There seems to be an underlying assumption here that a person must be dining out for the majority of meals if the "seal of approval" is to be a deciding factor.

And what about the "seal of approval" for one's own kitchen? Are we preparing meals at home that are "heart healthy" as well as nutricious? Or are we preparing meals so saturated in fat and sugars that we depend on our infrequent excursions to the restaurant to balance what we should have been balancing to begin with?

Does it really matter that much whether a restaurant has the Lettuce Police seal of approval?

So when the seals give their approval, does the restaurant post a picture of a clapping seal? Arf, arf!

shouldn't the city pay a consultant thousands of dollars to make this determination instead of asking us?

AGREED, THERE IS NO PLACE IN LAWRENCE TO GET GOOD FRIED CHICKEN. STROUDS WOULD BE GREAT, AS WOULD CHICKEN ANNIE'S OR CHICKEN MARY'S FROM THE PITTSBURG AREA. WITH ONLY KENTUCKY FRIED GREASE HERE, ANYTHING WOULD BE AN IMPROVEMENT.

I love healthy food but I am quite able to determine what is healthy and what's not by using good judgment and general knowledge. For example, McDonalds is crap while say....the vegetarian bistro in The Orient is delicious and healthy. Everything in moderation!

Yes, and then I would proceed to order the fattiest thing on the menu and eat it every day for 3 years until I get heart disease. Lawsuit city!

I don't need the government to interfere in my food choices. While it is reasonable to inspect food safety in order to prevent disease the government should not involve itself in any way with regard to food content. That should be left to the consumer. Such a seal could be the first step toward government regulating content as the Peoples Republic of New York City has already begun. This is a bad idea.

The last eatery I patronized that had a "Seal of Approval" was Smaks.

it doesn't matter what type of healthy seal they put anywhere, if the employees are nasty and unsanitary, the customers will be eating and healthy food and later squatting all day.
