Nutrition criteria for Healthy Dining - based on many recommendations of leading health organizations.

fruits and/or vegetables
lean protein, i.e., skinless white meat poultry, fish/seafood (including salmon), tofu, etc., with no more than two red meat dishes per restaurant
100 percent whole grains
Menu items must meet the following three criteria:

If a menu item exceeds only one of these criteria (fat, saturated fat, or calorie) by a small margin (i.e., 10 percent), that item may be included on the Web site
Whenever possible, menu items that are lower in sodium and cholesterol are featured.
