Healthy Eating Award

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"

Pearse Halpin, Head Chef Corporate Catering Rottapharm

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.

"Working with the Irish Heart Foundation is a no-brainer"
