Eat Fit options can be found at Good Eats Kitchen.

You can show your support for healthier menu options at Acadiana restaurants on June 6 during Eat Fit's Dine Out Day.

Restaurants participating in Dine Out Day will donate a portion of sales to support Eat Fit's team of dietitians, who work with restaurant chefs and owners to identify and develop healthier menu options for customers.

"By supporting the restaurants participating in the fundraiser, you're ultimately supporting Eat Fit," said Yvette Quantz, a registered dietitian who leads Eat Fit Acadiana. "You're also letting the community know that the Eat Fit initiative is important and letting the restaurants know it's important."

In addition to menu options at local restaurants, you might notice Eat Fit options in the cafeterias of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette or Lafayette General Medical Center. You'll also find Eat Fit's educational pieces at the Children's Museum of Acadiana.
