Bloomberg Wants NYC Hospitals to Get Healthier

NYC’s mayor campaigns to clean up the food served in hospitals.

After his successful bout with soda, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is tackling another health concern: the food served in hospital cafeterias. Bloomberg aims to rid the city’s hospitals of sugar and fatty foods such as fried chicken. In prior years, 15 NYC public hospitals reduced the caloric content in patients’ meals in addition to cutting down on the amount of junk food sold in vending machines, but Bloomberg wants to take it a step further, in an effort to make residents, specifically hospital patients and staff, healthier. Bloomberg’s vision will include eliminating deep fryers and making sure leafy salads are available in abundance in all cafeterias.
