Healthy Options

In 2004, the Independent Health Foundation created the Healthy Options Buffalo program to help our community make informed decisions when dining out, and as a result, help address the high rates of stroke and heart disease prevalent in Western New York. Through this program, the Foundation works with area restaurants to offer heart-healthy food options for their customers. These Healthy Options, which are considered lower in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, are offered in nearly 100 Buffalo area restaurants.
