Guam – The Guam non-communicable disease consortium is encouraging island restaurants to offer more healthy menu options.
So far three restaurants have agreed to participate in the healthy menu labeling pilot program launch. Jamaican Grill, Pacific Star Cafe, and Pika’s cafe have all agreed to offer items with reduced salt. A diet high in salt can cause high blood pressure which in turn is a major factor in strokes heart failure and heart attacks. “No one really ever thinks about reducing their salt until the facts are put in front of your face and then you kind of realize and I kind of felt like, you know it’s kind of in line with what we do so let’s just give it a shot,” said Pika’s Cafe owner Lenny Fejeran.
