Made with your health in mind posterAims of the award

The main aim of the award was to work with the catering sector in Scotland to encourage changes to catering practices and ingredients. Ultimately this made it easier for us all to eat healthier food when eating out.

By following the award conditions, establishments could guarantee that you can easily eat healthily every time you visit. Only businesses committed to preparing and serving food according to the award conditions could display the healthyliving award logo and certificate.

The award conditions ensure that healthier ingredients and cooking methods were used to keep fat, salt and sugar to a minimum, and that options such as water, low fat dairy products and fruit and vegetables were always available. We encourage caterers to maintain these award conditions as the healthyliving award transitions to the new Eating Out, Eating Well Framework.
