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 ‘The Right Ingredient’. The guide includes a range of suggestions for healthy options and how to modify recipes to make sure they are heart healthy.

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