Eating out can have a significant impact on our diet. The Eat Out Eat Well award recognises caterers who provide and promote healthy eating options, making it easier for their customers to make healthy eating choices.
Caterers can be presented with a bronze, silver, gold or platinum award based on the food on offer, cooking methods and how healthy options are marketed and promoted to customers. The award also recognises nutrition training and knowledge of staff. An additional award is available for caterers who follow strict Government standards for buying food which meets low salt and low fat standards.
A self-assessment form is available for businesses to review their menus. Further information about the scheme, including a caterer’s guide which gives ideas for simple changes to improve menus is available on the Eat Out Eat Well website.
