Healthier Festival Food? Yes!! We all know how notorious festival food is for being unhealthy: too much sugar, too much salt, too much fat, way too many calories. So a couple of years ago I convinced my food vendors to include some healthier food on their menus. To qualify as a “Healthier Food” it has to aim for a maximum of 200 calories. Other guidelines include: a maximum of 30% calories from fat, a maximum of 480 mg sodium, a maximum of 35% sugar by weight, and a maximum of 10% saturated fat.

The ❤ healthier items ❤ on the menus are bracketed by  hearts in the list below. Look for a plastic red heart next to the items on the menus at the food stands.

Sue Harris has been the Food Vendor Coordinator for over 20 years.
