Summertime in Western New York is a time to cherish. The sun comes out, the weather heats up, and we all go out to soak it up. The one signature event of summer is the Erie County Fair which attracts thousands of New Yorkers near and far for 12 glorious days of food and fun. While you’re there you *will* be faced with the toughest decision of them all: what to eat. To keep up your healthful eating habits or give into the fried treats and temptations is the question, and the answer is you can (and should) do both.

The aforementioned restaurants are members of the Independent Health Foundation’s Healthy Options Buffalo program for the Erie County Fair in 2016. The Healthy Options program was designed to help our community make informed decisions about healthy eating, and as a result, help address the high rates of stroke and heart disease prevalent in Western New York. Through this program, the Foundation works with area restaurants to offer heart-healthy food options that are considered lower in fat, saturated fat cholesterol, and sodium.
