Must hospital cafeteria food be healthful?

The Wall Street Journal, December 2, 2011
Researchers from UCLA and the Rand Corp. report in the journal Academic Pediatrics that of the 16  food venues serving 14 hospitals studied in July 2010, 81% offered unhealthful "impulse items" ? think freezers stocked with ice-cream treats ? near the cash register. Only 31% offered nutrition information at the point of purchase, while just 25% sold whole-wheat bread. The cafeterias aren't directly serving the young hospital patients, though, so why does it matter whether they're selling cookies and fried foods?
