Recently, the City adopted a policy that will expand healthy food and beverage choices on city property. Now, all food and beverages provided by the City through meetings, events, cafeterias, vending machines, etc., will meet national nutrition standards. That means more whole grains, lower sodium options and few sugary drinks that are Fit NOLA approved.

We applaud the City of New Orleans for making the healthy choice the easy choice. A special thank you to the American Heart Association’s Metro New Orleans Board for working with city leaders and local vendors to provide education and tools to help implement the policy.
