Report: More restaurants label menu items with healthful terms

More restaurants are using "healthy" as a food description although the overall number is still small.

Nation's Restaurant News cites a study by Food Genius, a menu research firm, that tracks items on 88,000 menus, accounting for more than 350,000 independent restaurant and chain units across the country. Their study found that only 7 percent of those locations used the word “healthy” to describe food offerings.

However, that figure rose 2 percentage points between October 2013 and October 2014.
