If you’re someone who travels a lot, it can be tough to keep your eating choices healthy. But if you fly into or out of Philadelphia International Airport, it may not be so tough. According to a recent press release, PHL was ranked among the top healthiest U.S. airports for eating choices.
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a non-profit group of physicians who promote nutrition, took a variety of U.S. airports into consideration when looking for healthy food options; overall, the PCRM collected 1,227 restaurant menus for analyzation. Tied with San Francisco International Airport, we’re happy to say that PHL ranked third on the list, jumping up eight spots from last year’s 11th place.
The PCRM took several criteria into consideration when grading the airports, including the availability of plant-based, cholesterol-free, and fiber-rich meals, all of which are made possible by MarketPlace PHL. MarketPlace offers healthy meals throughout all seven airport terminals. For example: mixed greens salads, avocado rolls, and vegetable spring rolls from Sky Asian Bistro and hummus sandwiches and fruit from Good 2 Go. There are also healthy choices from Tony Luke’s, Saladworks, Cibo Bistro, and many more.
In the press release, Marketplace PHL vice president and general manager Mel Hannah says, “MarketPlace PHL is proud to provide healthy dining options that span many different cuisines, from grab-and-go entrees to sit-down meals. To be included among the top three healthiest airports in the United States is a testament to our diverse lineup of food offerings.”
