GOOD reports on the National Restaurant Association’s new healthy eating initiative based on the idea of optimal default. What this means is that the customer is offered the optimal menu and has to actually ask for the less healthy option. So you will be asked if you want apple fries or french fries and will have to order full fat milk as kids’ beverages will all be low-fat. This is a good first step, but still a small one. Can we stop frying up everything, please? “Would you like a fruit cup or fries with that?” sounds so much better.
