Healthy food initiatives underway at Centra
Sunday - 4/28/2013, 3:00pm EDT
LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) -- Centra officials plan to give people an incentive to choose healthy food at the health care system's cafeterias.
The News & Advance (http://bit.ly/151ld1J ) reports that prices will be based on nutritional value. Healthy foods will cost less than unhealthy foods.
Color labels based on calories, fat, cholesterol and sodium content will help diners identify which foods are healthy. Foods that should be eaten frequently will have green labels. Foods to be eaten in moderation will have yellow labels. Red labels will identify foods that should only be eaten occasionally.
Centra also is buying produce from local farmers and growing its own food in gardens.
Support services managing director Wren Roberts says buying food locally reduces transportation costs and keeps food dollars in the community.
