Designed to promote healthier shopping habits, the food market is open to the public. It only stocks products that meet physician-in-chief Tom McDonald’s strict criteria for the “best and healthiest” food, including whole grain pasta, organic canned beans, and frozen buffalo. The HMO also promotes healthy eating amongst its clients and employees by hosting farmers markets at fifteen of its facilities in California and Oregon, with plans for more. Hm… an apple a day keeps the health insurance companies in the black?

My dream: a healthy fast food restaurant that would cater to children, my beta name for it “Jumpin’ Beans” You might be interested in this article too then, about the O’Naturals chain, via the Clarion Ledger, here: Comments are closed.
