March 2015
March is National Nutrition Month!

Celebrate National Nutrition Month by promoting your Healthy Restaurants certified menu items! If you have new items that you'd like to certify, please submit your detailed recipes to Amy Adler at aadler@healthyhowardmd.org.

Nutrition is critical for all of us and your participation in the Healthy Restaurants program shows that your business truly cares for the health of Howard County residents, workers, and visitors.

Advisory Committee:  The Healthy Restaurants program needs your help! We need restaurant owners/ managers to give insight and help us improve our program! Please fill out the survey here: http://bit.ly/18bQ0fg

We know your time is valuable so we're developing a digital survey that will only take about 5-10 minutes of your time. If you have any questions please contact Amy at  aadler@healthyhowardmd.org.
Pilot Promotional Program: We are gearing up to pilot a promotional program in which  we track the sales of Healthy Menu items at participating restaurants and in return your restaurant will receive free promotional materials. If you're interested, please email Amy at  aadler@healthyhowardmd.org.
Social Media Campaigns:   Is your restaurant active on social media? We're promoting Healthy Restaurants through social media. Do you have an event coming up or a new healthy menu item you want to promote? Was your restaurant recently featured in a publication? Send your photos  and content over  to aadler@healthyhowardmd.org  and we'll review it for posting!
