Reston, VA (PRWEB) May 06, 2013

Health Care Without Harm’s Healthy Food in Health Care program has issued its third Menu of Change report, tracking the progress of the health care sector toward healthy and sustainable food service operations and highlighting the work being done to advance these efforts nationally and in regional pilots.

“The health care facilities and professionals highlighted in this report are making the critical connection between their missions to protect health, the food they serve and the food system that produces it”, said Emma Sirois, National Co-Coordinator of the Healthy Food in Health Care Program. “We are inspired by the amazing progress of facilities and individuals contained in this report.”

The report includes the results of a recent HFHC nationwide survey of hospitals that are engaged with HCWH in developing healthy food programs. Following are some of the key findings from the survey as reported in the Menu of Change Report:

The trend toward healthy beverages continues to gain speed with over 80 percent of respondents reporting Healthy Beverage Programs and efforts and 70 percent taking measures to increase tap water consumption in lieu of bottled water.
  •     Less meat, better meat… Nearly 50 percent of respondents repo
