Fresh City eateries serve health kiosks

The Boston Herald is running a neat article about a number of nutrition kiosks being deployed to eateries throughout the city. From the article:

"The first kiosk was unveiled in Fresh City's new prototype restaurant in Warwick, R.I., last week. The next one will show up in the 13-unit chain's Newton location in two weeks.

"The 'Know Your Food' program is intended to alert Fresh City customers about menu options that match their dietary needs, according to Bruce Reinstein, chief operating officer.

"'Even though we've always offered these options, many customers never realized they could customize our food based on the way they live their life,' he said.

"Customers can access the information by clicking on individual menu items or one of eight categories such as 'lower in fat,' 'less carbs' or 'higher fiber.'"
