Eat Well Utah
Eat Well Utah is the Utah Department of Health and Human Services statewide initiative to make healthy food choices more available and appealing wherever food is served or sold. Cafeterias, concession stands, institutional meal service, and catering services are invited to participate.
By participating in Eat Well Utah, organizations will work with their state or local health department liaison to identify how they can better service their patrons by making the “healthy choice the easy choice.” This may include making changes to their food offerings, recipes, product placement, or signage.
Let’s make healthy food the new normal-at home and away.
