THIS IS VERY GOOD NEWS…HOW DOES THE PROCESSED FOOD INDUSTRY COMBAT A MOVE TO HEALTHY, FRESH, WHOLE FOODS AT PRISON FACILITIES…BRILLIANT TACTICAL MOVE IN THE BATTLE AGAINST OBESITY AS IT IS COUPLED WITH “SAVING TAXPAYERS MONEY” THROUGH LOWER HEALTHCARE COSTS……
Prison food in Indiana is getting a healthy makeover.
The Indiana Department of Correction says it’s introducing a new reduced sodium, low cholesterol menu.
Fresh fruit will be served in place of baked desserts, and fried foods will no longer be served. Fewer high-fat items will be on the menu. Prisoners will be offered an average of at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
Officials say the new menu has 20 percent lower sodium levels than the current diet.
DOC Commissioner Edwin Buss says a healthier diet can save taxpayers money by lowering prisoners’ risks of heart disease and other medical problems.
The healthier menu is coming to all DOC facilities this month.
