Missouri Live Well

Live Well Missouri logo

Eating out in Missouri just got healthier!  Many local restaurants now provide healthy menu items as part of the Missouri Live Well Restaurant program developed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS).  Consumers are spending more of their food dollars in restaurants, including fast food establishments, and DHSS is providing tools to help them make healthier choices.

What is Live Well?
The program was first conceived and developed by the Polk County Live Well Alliance to promote healthy living among the citizens of Polk County.  Restaurants that choose to be part of the Missouri Live Well Restaurant program help consumers easily identify and select healthy options when eating away from home.  Live Well menu items are lower in fat, calories and sodium.  The program uses science-based nutrition criteria to identify Live Well items and Live Well Restaurants must serve at least 2 healthy menu options that meet specific nutrition criteria.
