    The survey of 10 North American airlines' menus in December reveals an overall small increase in healthy and low-calorie food choices compared to the year before, says Charles Stuart Platkin, an assistant professor at CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter College in New York.

    Platkin has assessed the nutritional value of airline food in six annual surveys. And too many unhealthy items continue to dominate many airline menus, he says.

    "Airlines are still in the early stages of healthy offerings -- testing, learning and retesting," says Platkin, who edits the website DietDetective.com. "I believe, in years to come, airlines will realize that healthy and low-calorie offerings are what consumers are interested in purchasing and consuming."
