Palomar Health Cafes are Modeling Healthy Options


The cafés at Palomar Medical Center Escondido and Poway are leading by example when it comes to offering healthy food choices. As members of Partnership for a Healthier America, the cafés have committed to reducing sugary drinks and unhealthy snacks, increasing healthful menu items and promoting healthy choices, among other changes.

The cafés are now offering wellness meals, compliant with state requirements on macro and micronutrients, and in the coming months calories will be posted on prepared items in the cafés. New healthy recipes continue to be developed while best practices for serving sizes and healthier cooking methods are standardized.

The cafés are also using data solutions companies to analyze foods purchased and consumed to improve healthy offerings and decrease waste produced.
