Submitted: 28 April, 2015
Please decribe how you and your caterers have encouraged healthier restaurants/vending outlet/buffets (as applicable) for your staff over the last year. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section.
Since April 2014 we have continued to undertaken an extensive programme to educate, inform and inspire our team players to develop healthier diets and lifestyle.
Initiatives include our monthly Nutrition Bites communication available to all team players. The objective is to raise awareness of the relevance of nutrition to support optimum health and wellbeing. Topics covered include: Reducing sugar, reducing salt, keeping hydrated, the importance of fibre.
Since April 2014, team players have been encouraged to follow our monthly Bite Size steps campaign and lately in January 2015 our new, Clean Eating challenge. Each month team players are encouraged to make small changes to their diets: for example, monitor portion control, keep hydrated, eat more fibre, cut back on salt, eat more wholefoods and eat less sugar. Each month is supported with a Tasty Inspiration hand-out, following the government Change 4 Life programme.
All team players are provided a free, healthy lunch of lean protein, freshly prepared vegetables and low GI carbohydrates. Water is always available.
All team players receive on site nutrition and healthy eating training and have access to our customer Discovery Days held on site 4 times a year. Each day is supported by an information leaflet that is available to every team player in the business. Topics have included: ways to eat less sugar, clean eating, calorie information. In 2014 we trained every team player in the new allergen legislation and labelling requirements and were proud to be awarded the first B&I caterers' Allergen Accreditation Award in December 2014. All our team players are allergen champions.
All team players have access to Catherine Attfield, our Manager of Nutrition and Wellbeing who was recruited in September 2013 to support all our Health and Wellbeing initiatives.
