Live Healthy Lynchburg has challenged local restaurants to offer a balanced MyPlate dish for the month of January. Seven establishments agreed to take part in the Healthy Plate Challenge and the public is invited to vote for the winner! No strict calorie requirements were requested—although each plate is required to be half fruits & vegetables, one quarter grain, and one quarter protein. At the end of the month, awards will be given to the favorite adult and kid plates. Organizers hope the challenge will encourage local restaurants to continue to provide healthy choices on their menus all year long! For the list of participating restaurants visit:
