National Parks Make Big Change
The next time you visit a national park, the menus at the various snack counters and bars will now include nutritional meals. The national parks have recently announced their bid to encourage healthy diets among the nation’s people. There will be less fatty burgers, oily fries and bulky hot dogs.
The new health plan is part of the Healthy and Sustainable Food Program in an effort to widen the meal palate, giving customers the opportunity to taste healthier food and beverages.
Vacation time is no excuse to fill your tummy with junk food. Healthy eating is a constant practice that will never get old! Director of the National Park Service, Jonathan Jarvis said the prices are affordable so all can enjoy the veggie meals at the park.
He pointed out that the price for fruits and vegetable- based meals has been a deterrent for purchase and consumption of these valuable food products. Therefore directors at the national parks have eliminated this problem and are encouraging their visitors to eat up the good greens!
The health conscious park director added that a park is the exercise grounds for many people especially during the summer. Hence, it is a bit pointless to burn some carbs in an intensive jogging session then settle down with a bottle of soda.
The health eating initiative is not new to some national parks as they have been offering nutritious meals to their visitors for a number of years. Among these noteworthy parks are Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and Grand Canyon South Rim. Say no to the burgers and fries this summer. Enjoy a walk in the park with a delicious fruit smoothie instead!
