Healthy RC is pleased to welcome three new restaurants to the Healthy RC Dining program, bringing the total number of participating restaurants to more than 20.

Chop Stop is nutritious, delicious, and fast! You can fully customize your own Chop, soup, or wrap using over 40 delicious ingredients, or try one of the fantastic in-house recipes. Think of Chop Stop as social networking for food. All kinds of fresh ingredients and flavors combine for a sum that is even tastier than its individual parts.

Double Play Pizza is a family owned company offering natural food options with the freshest ingredients.

Flatbreads, salads, and soups are just a few items from their healthier menu. Come experience the flavor at 10431 Lemon Avenue, Suite F, Alta Loma.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe believes there is no better way to make a great meal than with quality natural ingredients.

Tropical Smoothie Café is guided by one simple belief: when you eat better, you feel better; and when you feel better, all is better. Its mission is to inspire a healthier lifestyle by serving amazing food and smoothies with a bit of tropical fun. Stop in for a taste at 12799 Foothill Boulevard, Suite A, Rancho Cucamonga.

The Healthy RC Dining program is a voluntary program for restaurants throughout the City that offer healthy options for adults and children using guidelines created by the City with the assistance of a registered dietitian. Current data shows that Americans eat one-third of their meals outside of the home, and two-thirds of adults and one-third of children are overweight or obese. Local numbers echo these statistics. Taking all these factors into consideration, the City is proud to partner with, and recognize, local restaurants that promote healthy options when residents dine out. Be sure to check our website at www.HealthyRC.com next time you feel like dining out, and consider a participating local restaurant enrolled in our Healthy RC Dining program.

Restaurants that choose to participate, and meet program requirements, receive recognition at a City Council meeting and promotion on the City's website and mobile application RC2GO. Participating restaurants also receive Healthy RC Dining branded items such as window decals to identify that the restaurant offers healthy dining options, table tents to feature healthy choices, menu stickers to highlight healthy menu items, and activity place mats and crayons for children featuring healthy eating tips. These items are offered at no cost as part of participation in the Healthy RC Dining Program. Please contact Healthy RC at (909) 477-2700, or visit us online at www.HealthyRC.com to participate.
