If you’re health conscious and looking out for dining options that aren’t high on calories, you can choose from 46 restaurants islandwide that have done the calorie counting for you.  

These restaurants are serving up a number of dishes that have less than 500 calories or contain at least eight per cent of wholegrains per serving.

The annual Singapore Restaurant Month aims to promote healthier dining in the country by encouraging F&B industry players and the public to opt for healthier food options when eating out.

This year, the event returns with 20 new participating restaurants.

Launched by the Restaurant Association of Singapore last year as part of the SG50 celebrations, a total of 50 restaurants participated in 2015.

SRM takes place from 1 to 31 July and is held in conjunction with the Singapore Food Festival (15 to 31 July) and the coming Food and Drink Campaign (28 July to 28 October) by the Health Promotion Board.

This year, some of the participating restaurants include Zaffron Kitchen, Earle Swensen’s and Nara Thai Cuisine. Here are 16 of the participating dishes.
