The Royal Voluntary Service Café at Perth Royal Infirmary has been recognised at the national healthyliving awards (HLA) event for its efforts to support healthy eating.
The café received the higher level award, the HLA plus, for demonstrating a greater commitment to healthier eating including having held the standard healthyliving award for the last two years.
The healthyliving award is free and open to most food-serving outlets in Scotland – but specifically places where people go to buy food regularly, such as hospital canteens, cafés, sandwich shops, workplace restaurants, further education refectories, and restaurants.
The healthyliving award is supported by NHS Tayside, the Scottish Government and NHS Health Scotland and is a key driver for a healthier Scotland by helping people to make small changes to their diet. It forms an integral part of the route map to prevent overweight and obesity, and is part of a drive to reduce inequalities.
