Fueling a productive and healthy workforce
With a quarter of the food eaten prepared and cooked outside of the home, workplaces play a key part in offering healthier food choices.
Employees are increasingly reliant on their workplaces to provide at least one, if not two, of their daily meals.
Healthy eating can have a huge impact on how people feel during the day and the work they achieve.
If we don’t eat regular, well-balanced healthy meals or drink enough water, we could be prone to headaches, feel sluggish or have difficulty concentrating.
Gaining the Happy Heart Healthy Eating award will help to create a culture of health and wellbeing, provide long-term sustainable programmes and demonstrate a commitment to the organisation’s most important asset- its employees.
"Through healthy eating and a fresh approach overall morale is fantastic"
The Award programme will assist your staff restaurant in adopting healthier cooking practices and providing healthier food choices, without incurring substantial cost – it may even save money.
We will support you to make the healthy choice the easy choice for employees.
There are three different levels of achievement for the award: bronze, silver, and gold. You can apply for any level but must meet the specific criteria.
