More and more restaurants and businesses have been given the Recipe 4 Health for offering healthy food options.
The award, run by Blackburn with Darwen Council, recognises those food businesses, schools and nurseries which provide healthier food choices to those they cater for.
The Recipe 4 Health initiative is in line with the Public Health Responsibility Deal which encourages businesses to make pledges to help tackle ill health and the burden of obesity on society.
An award presentation event took place at Dolly’s Tea Room on Bolton Road, Darwen, and awards were presented by Councillor Mohammed Khan, Blackburn with Darwen Council’s Executive member for Health and Adult Social Care.
Councillor Khan said: “I am thrilled that we have been able to welcome even more businesses, schools and restaurants into the Recipe 4 Health project. They are all doing great work in offering healthy food to residents young and old across the borough, giving people the choice to choose tasty, healthier food and boost their well-being.”
