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

The healthyliving award is your sign of healthier food – by following the award conditions, establishments can guarantee you can easily eat healthily every time you visit. Only businesses committed to preparing and serving food according to the award conditions can display the healthyliving award logo and certificate.

The award conditions ensure that healthier ingredients and cooking methods are used to keep fat, salt and sugar to a minimum, and that options such as water, low fat dairy products and fruit and vegetables are always available.
