Three restaurants at St Peter’s Hospital have received prestigious Eat Out Eat Well Gold Awards. Just Dine, Eat Well and the Post Graduate Education Centre were given the awards for the range of healthy eating options on their menus.
OCS Catering Manager, Duncan Spring said: “Naturally we are delighted to have been given these awards. A great deal of meticulous work and planning goes into making sure our restaurants offer our patients, visitors and staff a varied range of nutritious healthy food.
“This recognition is testament to the hard work of everyone in the OCS team and we will continue to meet the highest quality standards and provide a broad and balanced range of wholesome and healthy foods for the benefit of everyone who uses our restaurants.”
The Eat out Eat Well Award Scheme has been developed to reward caterers who make it easier for their customers to make healthier choices when eating out. It aims to encourage food businesses to provide healthier options to customers, such as increasing fruit, vegetables, and starchy carbohydrates, and decreasing fat, especially saturated fat, sugar and salt.
Eat out Eat Well also recognises the provision of healthy options for children, and rewards staff training, promotion and marketing of healthier options and is managed by Buckinghamshire & Surrey trading standards.
