YMCA Adopts Healthier Options

One of the nation's largest childcare providers announces healthier eating options for kids.

YMCA officials, joined by first lady Michelle Obama recently announced that the organization would be offering fruits, vegetables, and water instead of sugary drinks and snacks, and increasing exercise time during the community organization's childcare programs. Approximately 700,000 children are enrolled in 10,000 YMCA chapters across the country, and while the decision is not mandatory for all chapters, Neil Nicoll, president and chief executive of YMCA USA, believes 85 percent of chapters will comply. White House officials hope the YMCA as one of the nation’s largest childcare providers, will encourage other daycare programs to follow suit.
