Eating healthier is a mantra we are hearing these days in the quest to improve our health and live longer. Hudson Valley Hospital Center has launched some important initatives in this area recently with our Organic Garden, Farmer's Market and a new healthier food service for patients and employees. But one healthy eating initiative has been going on under the radar at HVHC for quite some time, and that is the Hospital's comittment to encouraging new moms to breast feed. Our lactation consultant Linda LeMon recently reminded us of why breastfeeding is so important to helping us get a great start on healthy eating with this column that appeared in The Journal News.
