Q. Is there a restaurant in Waterloo that has a menu with low sodium content?

A. We couldn't find a list of restaurants that specifically offer low sodium items, but the American Heart Association offers these tips when dining out. Look for “healthy” designations or symbols, or key words in the names of some items (like light, fresh, fit, vegetarian, skinny, and so on); look for the Heart-Check mark on the menu for healthier choices; or ask your server or even the chef about ingredients, preparation methods, or substitutions for your diet. In addition, many restaurants and fast food chains now have nutrition information on their websites.
