The Baked Whitefish entree and tartCherry Cobbler dessert meld Boston Market's trademark chef-inspired, wholesomecooking with "superfoods" thought to offer health benefits.

In addition, the beneficial compounds in Montmorencytart cherries reduce inflammation and help relieve the pain of arthritis andgout. For these added health benefits, cherries have been named a"superfruit" to watch in 2008.
"When developing new menu items, we look at the trends and new flavorswhile staying true to our existing menu," said Bruce Springer, director ofresearch and development. "As different foods rise in popularity or studiesare released detailing the health benefits of certain foods, we look for waysto incorporate them into our menu."
