Healthy Place Program
Ever struggle finding a balance of going out to eat but eating healthy? We want to help you make the healthy choice the easy choice in Sioux Falls! The Healthy Place Program helps consumers make healthier choices by denoting restaurants who offer options based on a set criteria created by Live Well. Our goal is to make being healthy a little easier for the residents and visitors of Sioux Falls. We understand that life is busy and eating out is part of that, however; that doesn’t mean it can’t be a healthy part.

Are you a business that wants to be a Healthy Place? Contact Live Well Sioux Falls for more information regarding the criteria involved with this program.
The Healthy Place Program makes sense. Parents and children are eating out more than ever. Over the past 20 years, the percentage of daily calories consumed outside the home has nearly doubled. This program can help to enhance business image in our community. Being recognized as a Healthy Place shows that you offer healthy options to patrons and that you care about them and your community. Applicants are required to receive 80% of the points possible to qualify as a Healthy Place. Points are based off of the following ten sections of criteria:
- Staff Training
- Side Dishes
- Children's Menu (If Applicable)
- Local Foods
- Other Features
- Menu Labeling
- Health and Wellbeing
If you want to participate, but don't think you qualify, contact us! We want to work with you to become a Healthy Place!
