Why Wise Choice?

Deaconess and the West Side Nut Club have teamed up to recognize lower calorie, lower fat and lower sodium Wise Choices at the Fall Festival. 

The Wise Choice program features 11 booths, offering 23 food and drink items that are healthier options for people who want or need them.  

Because of the Wise Choice program, individuals who may have health issues (such as diabetes or heart disease), or who simply want some healthier choices will be able to find those options more easily.

All recipes were analyzed by a team of Deaconess dietitians and certified to meet the following Wise Choice criteria:  

Snacks and Sides

  • Calories: 500 or less    

  • Saturated fat: 5 grams or less

  • Sodium: 500 mg or less

  • No fried foods


  • Calories: 500 or less

  • Saturated fat: 5 grams or less

  • Sodium: 750 mg or less

  • No fried foods

Also, all desserts and sweets must be made with fruit and also meet the other criteria.

Many items previously offered at the Fall Festival already met our Wise Choice criteria.  Some are brand new “culinary creations,” and others are alternate versions of existing recipes (such as offering a sugar-free option). 


Think About

  • Enjoy your Fall Festival favorites in moderation. Perhaps split an item or two with a friend or family member. That way you get to sample a variety!  

  • The length of the Fall Festival - from St. Joe Avenue to Wabash Avenue - is a third of a mile.Walking the length of the Fall Festival and back, a 150 pound adult would burn 50 calories 
  • Save calories and hydrate yourself by drinking bottled water instead of sodas. Many booths sell bottled water, so it's a great way to support a variety of organizations. 

Thank You

We thank the booths who worked with us to bring these healthier options to you at the Fall Festival!
