Adults need help making healthy choices for themselves and being role models for their families.  That’s why Kentucky state government has teamed up with the Tweens Nutrition and Fitness Coalition to offer state employees and visitors dependable, healthy options at work. Each menu item has been crafted by expert chefs, certified to meet nutrition standards and taste test approved. Servings are portioned by trained staff and labeled with the Better Bites logo so you always know you are making a healthy, easy choice.

“I’ve seen these options on the kids’ menu at the Kentucky State Parks. I’ve been waiting for them to make adult meals too. I will come to the cafeteria at work more often, knowing they have these healthy options!”

-Kentucky State Employee, Cabinet for Health and Family Services
