Mr. Food Dishes at the Taste of Buffaloby ahackett
May 7, 2009 - Festival Food Gets a Makeover
The Taste of Buffalo is one of the largest food festivals in the nation -- and what makes it a stand-out is all the healthy eating options they've been dishing up in the past few years.
The Taste of Buffalo is the first food festival in the nation to adopt a healthy food policy, with all participating restaurants required to offer at least one healthy option. With statistics showing that 66% of Americans are overweight, more than 23 million have diabetes and 30% have high blood pressure, seeing families having fun eating healthy foods, rather than high-fat and calorie-laden foods, is something we hope will catch on everywhere!
