Reaping a Harvest

As part of a growing trend to serve healthier foods and promote disease prevention among patients and customers, many hospitals across the country are revamping their foodservice programs. Some are relying on local food suppliers for fresh foods, and others are planting their own gardens. They’re growing fruits and vegetables and using them as ingredients in various recipes to create an atmosphere focused on health and wellness.

In this month’s E-News Exclusive, Today’s Dietitian profiles a Wisconsin hospital that planted a garden the size of a football field to offer more nutritious foods in its cafeteria. To read even more about what hospitals are doing to improve their foodservice programs around the country, read “The State of Hospital Nutrition” in the October issue of Today’s Dietitian, or online here.

Gardening for Better Health
By Lindsey Getz

A Wisconsin hospital harvests a bounty to serve more healthful meals.

As more hospitals revamp their menus and offer healthier fare, many are turning to local food suppliers. But UW Health Partners Watertown Regional Medical Center in Watertown, Wisconsin, has taken this a step further and created an 11,000-sq ft garden in its own backyard.

“When we first started talking about growing some of our own produce, our vision was a small raised garden off the back of our kitchen—only a 10-ft by 10-ft kind of space,” says Chef Justin Johnson. “But the more we talked about our desire to use local ingredients and make fresh food the centerpiece of our menu, the more we realized that growing it ourselves would eliminate the middleman and be our ideal solution. So we started looking at the property the hospital owned. We found a patch below a hill in the parking lot which was about a football field size.”

Latinos More Vulnerable to Fatty Pancreas, Type 2 Diabetes

Latinos are more likely to store fat in the pancreas and are less able to compensate by excreting additional insulin, a Cedars-Sinai study shows.

The research examining overweight, prediabetes patients, published online by Diabetes Care, is part of a focus by Cedars-Sinai’s Heart, Biomedical Imaging Research, and Diabetes and Obesity Research institutes to identify biological measures that could help predict which patients are likely to develop type 2 diabetes.

Calorie Control
“Prevention of diabetes is our goal,” says Richard Bergman, PhD, director of the Cedars-Sinai Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute and a lead study author. “Not all people who are overweight or obese and who have insulin resistance go on to develop diabetes. If we can determine who’s most likely to develop diabetes and why, then we can make strides toward preventing it in those individuals.”
