Food served in children’s hospitals rated largely unhealthy – UCLA Health and Medicine News

So, what is the deal with this? After all, hospitals should be one of the many places where healthier and better food options are available! If it comes down to the “almighty dollar”, which I’m sure it does, there are some serious options to consider. I’m sure that there is and had been some improvement, but, it needs to happen now!

This quote comes from a physician participating in this study:
“If we can’t improve the food environment in our hospitals, how do we expect to improve the health of food in our community?” Lesser said. “By serving as role models for healthy eating, we can make a small step toward helping children prevent the onset of dietary-related chronic diseases.”
