Parents - Tips for managing Halloween candy

Hillcrest South dietitian Jenny Watkins, RD/LD, joins us on the blog today to talk about a healthy way to approach Halloween and all that candy.

Serving Patients and Visitors One Dish at a Time – Recognizing the Hillcrest South Dietary Department

We may never meet them, but we encounter their work everyday. Whether it is catching a whiff of the daily feature hot off the grill as we walk by the café or hearing the nurse knock and announce, “the fruit plate you ordered is here,” the dietary staff at Hillcrest South are proud of the reputation that precedes their food. They begin the day early preparing up to 1400 meals a day for patients, visitors and staff.
