According to the National Restaurant Association, a collaborating partner in the HEALTHY DINING initiative, health and nutrition are among the hottest trends in restaurants this year. The Association’s research shows that three in four adults say they are trying to eat more healthfully in restaurants now than they did two years ago. And nearly three in 10 adults (27 percent) have gone online to search for nutrition information about restaurant food, up from 24 percent a year ago.
