The article deals with the efforts of hospitals in the U.S. to serve healthy desserts. Executive chef of Akron Children's Hospital Cathy Barko in Ohio incorporates healthier desserts to their menus by offering sugar-free puddings and popsicles to patients to satisfy their sweet tooth. At Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital, fresh fruits are placed in baskets throughout the cafeteria where they are visible and easily accessible.
