Show Us Your Healthy Eats! #HealthyEatsNJ

We care about your health, New Jersey, but we also love great food.

Show us your healthy eats, New Jersey!

We CAN have it both ways, and we need your help to show how. Join our #HealthyEatsNJ online food fest this summer. Each week from June 4 to July 28 we'll announce a theme week -- vegetarian, proteins, grains, etc. All you need to do is visit a restaurant (remember to check in or tag!), whip up something at home or order from a food truck and post a picture of your meal using the hashtag #HealthyEatsNJ. Get creative and inspire us to eat well and get healthy!
