What is GoodFoodNearYou?

What the experts have to say...

"If you are looking for food help when you are on the go, is a handy tool. Calorie and health conscious eaters can find menu options in local chain restaurants that will support their diet goals,"

says Nancy Clark, MS, RD CSSD, a Boston-area nutritionist and author of the best-selling Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook.

"With GoodFoodNearYou, it is not about good or bad choices, it is about making informed choices,"

says Dina Aronson, MS, RD, an internationally recognized nutritionist specializing in web technology in the health industry.

"As a Registered Dietitian, I know that "healthy" means different things to different people. Calorie-consciousness for weight management is one way people pursue health. Many of my clients dine out frequently for reasons ranging from no time to cook, to frequent business travel to lack of cooking skills. There are plenty of good choices at restaurants these days, and GoodFoodNearYou is a good way for people to sort through the choices. I also have to say, I am not a fan of little menu symbols that claim a food is "healthy" based on arbitrary rules from some organization or another. I'm all for letting the customers choose, and GoodFoodNearYou is all about empowering consumers to make their own decisions,"

Donna P. Feldman, MS, RD., private practice in nutrition therapy, specializing in weight management, eating disorders and food allergy; food and nutrition writer.

"As a personal trainer in Los Angeles, being able to quickly find good food that fits my standards is important. There's no better tool than GoodFoodNearYou",

says Kathy Kaehler, Celebrity Trainer and Food Coach.

"As a six time Mr. World Fitness Winner, I have a deep knowledge of what is healthy, but busy everyday people and families that might not be fitness experts can benefit from having a tool like GoodFoodNearYou that helps them make informed choices and conveniently live healthier lives,"

says Franco Carlotto, Fitness Expert, Actor, multiple World Fitness Winner and Founder of Fitness For Kids.

The development of GoodFoodNearYou is inspired by a typical office dilemma during lunchtime: where to find healthy restaurant food in the area?

GoodFoodNearYou helps you (and us!) easily find the best choices available at the restaurants nearby. In one simple location based search GoodFoodNearYou delivers the lowest calorie item at the twenty restaurants near you.

Click on a search result to see the full nutrition information for that menu item, a map to the location, the menu of that restaurant, and the nutrition information for every menu item. You can sort your search results by closest distance, lowest calories, lowest carbs or lowest fat.

Right now, GoodFoodNearYou delivers menu nutrition information for over 220,000 U.S. restaurant locations. Typically, GoodFoodNearYou search results include the restaurants where average people commonly eat.

We want to add more local mom and pop favorites, health food and specialty food restaurants. Since many independent restaurants either do not have web sites or do not disclose their nutrition information, this will take time. But, we're working on it. For now, GoodFoodNearYou is a great way to make the best choices at the popular restaurants that people go to most often.

With the help of GoodFoodNearYou dining out and making healthy choices has never been so easy. Wherever you are - at work, at home or in your car, traveling on business or vacation - use GoodFoodNearYou on your web browser or cell phone to:

  • Easily navigate restaurant menus to find healthy food options near your location
  • Sort restaurant food by lowest fat, lowest calories or lowest carbs and advance your search by entering a specific nutritional value
  • Search near your current location, enter another location or find good food near a popular landmark, university or airport
