Allina ready to dump sugary soft drinks and french fries


Allina Health System wants to deep-six its deep-fat fryers and eliminate sugary soft drinks, too.

The hospital operator announced the goals internally Friday, saying Allina wants to change vending machines and cafeterias in ways that will promote and maintain health in communities.

“Allina has made the decision to work toward eliminating sugar-sweetened beverages in our facilities and deep-fat fryers in our cafeterias,” wrote Dr. Penny Wheeler, Allina’s chief executive, in a Friday memo to employees. “These are simple environmental changes that have been proven to make a significant difference in health.”
