The chocolate-glazed doughnuts and the apple fritters are on their way out of 10 Nova Scotia hospitals.
Capital Health, the province’s largest health authority, says it has become the first in Canada to require that the Tim Hortons franchises in its hospitals sell only food that meets healthy-food guidelines.
Starting in October, Capital Health said in a press release issued Friday, baked goods such as doughnuts and those muffins that don’t meet guidelines will no longer be on the franchises’ menus.
The move is the latest by Canadian hospitals to improve their food offerings.
Earlier this spring, the Burger King restaurant inside Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children, Canada’s largest pediatric hospital, closed after the administration chose not to renew its lease.
