Choosing a restaurant serving tasty, healthy meals could soon become a lot easier thanks to the launch of Eat Out Eat Well.

The new scheme helps businesses to promote their healthy eating options and health bosses at East Sussex County Council are keen to get more eateries on board.

Co-ordinated by environmental health teams across the county and supported by the Health Improvement Team within Public Health at East Sussex County Council, the scheme helps to promote better nutrition and increase healthier food choices for customers.

Healthier food choices

Restaurants, cafes and pubs offering their customers healthier food choices could get an award recognising their contribution to healthy eating. The scheme also extends to staff canteens and school kitchens.

Depending on the number of healthier choices offered, businesses can receive a bronze, silver or gold award, which they can display on the premises to inform customers. To find out more visit the Eat Out Eat Well website.
