Three more Clark County restaurants offer healthier options, choice of smaller portions

CLARK COUNTY — Three more Clark County restaurants are recognized as “Healthy Neighborhood Restaurants” by Clark County Public Health.

Linda’s Home Plate, Nuestra Mesa and The Garage earned the distinction by meeting specific criteria for healthier side dishes, kids meals and beverages and by adding smaller portions to their menus. Nuestra Mesa is the first restaurant in Camas to earn this recognition.

“These restaurants joined a growing number of eateries that support healthy food access in Clark County,” said Melissa Martin, program coordinator. “As a result of the Healthy Neighborhood Restaurant Program, hundreds of restaurant patrons are selecting healthier choices every day.”

Public Health launched the program in 2012 to help local, non-chain restaurants better meet the health needs of customers. Using grants from Kaiser Permanente and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Public Health staff and local restaurant owners formed an advisory committee that developed eligibility criteria and menu guidelines for participating restaurants.
