A program announced Thursday by Kern County Public Health Services is designed to make healthy dining choices easier.

The program, Certified Healthy, will use a number of criteria to identify foods that are healthy - those that can be used to lower chronic disease and obesity risks.

The program recognizes restaurants that provide such foods and give the restaurants stickers to display in their windows.
