The Healthier Scotland Award sponsored by the healthyliving award, in association with NHS Health Scotland


The Healthier Scotland Award invites nominations from all sectors of the industry, including hotels, workplace restaurants, further education establishments and high street outlets. This award will recognise individuals or organisations which have made an outstanding contribution to supporting and promoting healthier eating, reducing health inequalities, and for making it easier for people to eat healthily.

Nominations MUST include a statement of 150-250 words on how healthier eating practices have been supported within the establishment, and how the establishment differentiates itself from its competitors, and how this relates to health inequalities.

Supporting evidence will be required, and can include menus, press cuttings or initiatives aimed at encouraging healthier eating and incorporating a health culture into the operation of the business.

A maximum of six A4 pages of substantiating evidence may be submitted.
