ABSTRACT
This article reports on the increase in annual employee cafeteria sales of Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania by incorporating more healthy-foods, as of November 15, 2005. Each day the cafe offers two entrees; now one of them is always heart-healthy, says Steve Kramer, director of shared services. Kramer also educated the food service staff and cafe customers by making nutritional information visible and having a clinical dietitian on hand to answer any questions. The dietitian is also frequently stationed at a booth outside the cafe handing out samples and information on a particular topic, such as fiber. One successful event featured test tubes showing the amount of fat and sodium in many popular dishes.
