Bronx Health REACH Featured in El Diario

The Institute’s Bronx Health REACH program was featured in El Diario’s recent article Consejos para cuidar la alimentación de los hijos (Tips for taking care of childrens’ nutrition).

The article addresses parents’ concerns about providing healthy snacks and lunches for their children as summer comes to a close. In addition to promoting the national Choose MyPlate program, El Diario highlighted Nutrition Coordinator Kelly Moltzen’s recommendation to parents to “siempre deben de inclinarse por frutas y vegetales” (always favor fruits and vegetables).

Bronx Health REACH is a coalition of community organizations and health care providers working together to eliminate health disparities in the Bronx, including the disproportionate number of school aged children who are overweight and obese.
