From Mrs. Dash Foodservice.

There was a time when healthy food meant counting calories, omitting carbs, giving up sugar and going fat-free—in other words, it was all about deprivation.

But not anymore. Today’s definition of healthy means an overall focus on nutrition and wellness that doesn’t mean giving up enjoyment. It’s all about balance: good fats, healthy carbs, better sweeteners, wholesome ingredients and satisfying flavor enhancements. It means food that customers can feel good about, at the same time that they’re enjoying the dining experience.

And a survey by the NPD Group found one-third of “All Day Breakfast” buyers hadn’t visited the restaurant in the month prior to the extended breakfast hours.

While only 14% of operators surveyed for FSD’s 2016 FoodService Handbook said they expected breakfast sales to surge this year, jumping on the pancakes-and-bacon bandwagon looks increasingly profitable. With the erratic schedules of college...
