Healthier Menus Awards
The aim of the Healthier Menus Award is to encourage food businesses and staff canteens to provide wholesome, healthy food choices on their menu.
To qualify for the award, food businesses must:
- keep high standards of hygiene
- be an independent business based in South Lakeland
- provide healthier food choices on the menu everyday
- show that healthier techniques and ingredients are used
Taking part in the award should lead to:
- happier and healthier customers
- increased customer approval
- enhanced reputation
- engaged and motivated staff
- increased publicity
How to apply
Businesses will need to show how their menu meets the criteria by filling in a Healthier Menus Awards Score Sheet (PDF 445KB / 2 pages).
Post score sheets to:
Public Protection Group
South Lakeland District Council
South Lakeland House
Your application will be assessed by a Food Officer, who will contact you to discuss the information on the score sheet and to provide advice if necessary.
You will then receive a certificate and door sticker to display in your business. Our communications team may also promote that you have achieved the award, if you do not want this to happen please tick the box on the score sheet.
Applications can be made throughout the year but once the award has been presented it will be valid until the next food hygiene inspection.
Random checks will take place to make sure the menu continues to meet the criteria, if it does not, the award could be withdrawn.
You will need to inform our Public Protection team if the ownership of the premises changes.
