Better-for-You Menus Made Easy

Fit Harvest is a one-stop resource for today's operator, offering restaurant-quality recipes, with fresh-tasting, easy-to-prepare concepts and information about integrating better-for-you options into an efficient and profitable operation.

Find out how easy it is to get started now.

In creating Fit Harvest, Nestlé Professional surveyed operators to find out what they would need in order to serve better-for-you menu options that their customers would order and come back for. The wish list included:

  • Simple component-cooking recipes with readily available ingredients
  • Minimal preparation steps
  • Versatility to allow for using products in multiple ways to present flavorful variety and on-trend menu selections
  • Meeting nutritional guidelines as well as flavor demands
  • 450 calories or less per portion for full plate options, and 200 calories for à la carte options
  • 2–3 servings of fruits and vegetables
  • Healthy fats, whole grains, and moderate levels of sodium, fat, and sugars
