L.A. County, Restaurants Launch Healthy Dining Program
On Thursday, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health launched a program -- called Choose Health LA Restaurants -- in partnership with regional restaurants to promote healthier dining options. Participating restaurants will offer smaller portion sizes, as well as children's meals with less fried food and more vegetables and fruits. The program aims to help address the county's 23% obesity rate.
