Healthier Catering

Healthy catering – at children’s parties or school fundraising events – can send a great message to kids about the importance of eating healthy foods.

It’s not hard either. A few simple changes to the food you serve can make a big difference – and also prove that healthier is still delicious!

For tips to help you serve healthy food and drinks at your next event, check out the Heart Foundation’s healthier catering resource ‘A Healthier Serve: The Heart Foundation’s Guide to Healthier Catering’. The guide includes a range of suggestions for healthy options at breakfast, lunch and dinner functions. There are also ideas for hot and cold finger food, vegetarian options, BBQs and tasty dessert items.

When preparing food for groups, remember to check if people have any food allergies.
