Healthy Options

The main purpose of the “Healthy Option” label is to guide consumers in selecting the healthier option when faced with multiple choices of a particular type of food item. Please note that the “Healthy Option” label is simply a guide for the general public. Everyone’s nutritional needs are unique; therefore, the consumer needs to be a full participant in the process of making healthy choices. Also keep in mind that most products that bear the “Healthy Options” label are processed foods which are never as healthy as their whole food counterparts such as fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

In addition, the “Healthy Options” label not only covers food, but personal care and household products that are kinder to the environment and our bodies.

The product recommendations are based on the research of Kim Rush Lynch. Kim is a Certified Nutritional Consultant and Health Coach and the owner of the local business, Cultivating Health.

Products bearing the “Healthy Options” label subscribe to one or more of the following criteria.
