New York City doctors are prescribing fruits and vegetables
to obese or overweight patients. Last month, Deputy Mayor Linda
Gibbs and Health Commissioner Thomas Farley launched the Fruit and
Vegetable Prescription Program available for at-risk families to
help them have access to healthier foods. This program allows obese
or overweight patients to obtain Health Bucks, which are redeemable
for produce at more than 140 local farmers markets.
