New Catering Menu

Premier Pulse     December 2017

PremierHealthyLiving_Stack_640x360In April of this year, we introduced a more healthful catering menu and more healthful retail food choices intended to benefit our employees, physicians, and communities. These changes became effective on May 1, 2017.

The new catering menu offers not only healthier choices that meet Premier Healthy Living’s standards for healthful foods, but also more selections, as requested in your feedback.

Previously, menu selections were limited due to priority mainly being given to items that had a low percentage of calories from fat. The new menu focuses on the American Heart Association’s guidelines, which limit trans and saturated fats while increasing the variety of items that can be served. This will allow more flexibility when planning meetings and special events.

It is our expectation that any catering that is financed by Premier Health will go through our catering services.

The new catering menu includes selections rich in fruits and vegetables, lean meats and seafood. Fats are used carefully in food preparation, and seasonings focus on spices with limited sodium and sugar. Please share the new menu with your employees.

These changes are part of a broader effort to create a healthier work environment and encourage healthier living. Your understanding is appreciated as we take this important step to maintain our momentum. Contact your location’s nutrition services director if you have any questions about the new catering menu.
