Healthier Options

Improve your customers’ health with our Healthier Options scheme for food businesses

Join our Healthier Options scheme to encourage more customers to visit you and to eat healthier!

 

About our Healthier Options Scheme

The aim of the programme is to help local small and medium-sized businesses across Bedfordshire to make healthier changes to their menu and food preparation. Participating food outlets will be supported by the Healthier Options team to offer their customers healthier choices.  Download our leaflet to lean more about the scheme.

 

What to expect when joining

Meet with your local food officer to make a Healthier Options pledge. This could include:

  • introducing healthier options into your menu
  • reducing the amount of fat, sugar and salt you use in your cooking
  • promoting healthier drinks in your chiller        

 

Once you’ve agreed your pledge, we’ll help you achieve it within three months. There’s no problem with achieving earlier – the sooner they’re in place, the sooner we can welcome you on board.

 

The Healthier Options team have put together some of our top tips that businesses can use to design and create their pledge. See below for our Tip Sheets.
