According to the Food Standards Agency, one in six meals is now consumed outside the home.

The scheme will encourage food businesses to make small changes such as reducing the fat, sugar and salt levels of dishes and offering other healthy options.

Winchester City Council’s health protection team will give businesses either a bronze, silver or gold award based on the type of food, cooking methods, and how healthy choices are promoted.
