Jerusalem Pilot Program: Healthy Diet in Kindergartens


About 15 kindergartens in Jerusalem started a month-long pilot program on Tuesday to serve healthy meals with reduced fats and salt, based on whole grains, produce and unprocessed meat.

Deputy Mayor Rachel Azaria said, "In recent years we have witnessed the changes that occur in the way our children eat., And so we decided to act in favor of healthy food, more closely monitored, and a precise definition of the quality of the food that is permitted and proper to serve to our children."
