In Reply We appreciate the thoughtful letter from Rediger and Miles regarding our study1 and offer a few additional points. Given the importance of nutrition for health, we share the view that a broad range of nutrition options should be available to patients. In our view, medically tailored meal programs are one important tool that we hope becomes more widely available.
