There’s a new push to encourage more healthy food options for residents in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The county council is considering a bill that would bring more options to the county and support businesses that offer more balanced meals. Prince George’s County Council Vice-Chair Wala Blegay introduced the bill and said it would provide free advertising and promotion for businesses who choose to participate in the program. That means 30% of a restaurant’s menu would need to be deemed healthy by the county’s dietitian.
