The article reports on a new snack program for breast-feeding mothers that will start at the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pennsylvania in the summer of 2009. Mothers will start receiving snack bags in the morning when the hostess is on rounds to pick up breakfast trays. Because women need about 400 additional calories a day when they are breastfeeding, snacks were delivered to the women in between meals. Thersa Kevak, manager of patient foodservice, explains the reasons why the program was developed.
