The Healthier Catering Commitment is a scheme we run aimed at businesses operating in Telford and Wrekin. The project aims to promote eating a nutritious, balanced diet which is important in maintaining health and reduces the risk of a number of diseases (including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer).
It recognises those businesses that demonstrate a commitment to provide healthier choices by reducing the level of saturated fat, sugars and salt content in their foods, offering healthy options.
Over half of the adult population in Telford and Wrekin is either obese or overweight and in the younger population, 35% of Year 6 Primary School Children are either obese or overweight.
How will your business benefit?
The Healthier Catering Commitment recognises the value placed by your business, school, early years or adult care setting on the importance of healthy eating. You will become part of a network of caterers who are committed to supporting residents and visitors to Telford and Wrekin to lead healthier lives.
