Healthy living award for hub cafe

Newbattle Healthy Living Award

Our commitment to making sure our café customers can buy healthy food has been recognised with a national award.

Well done Newbattle CC cafe

Our hub cafe at the Newbattle Community Campus can now display a Healthy Living Award.

Endorsed by the NHS

Endorsed by NHS Health Scotland and the Scottish Government, the award recognises caterers that make it easier to eat healthily.

Healthier ingredients

This means that healthier ingredients and cooking methods are used to keep fat, salt and sugar to a minimum, and that options such as water, low fat dairy products and fruit and vegetables are always available.

Simple changes

Midlothian Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for sport and leisure services, Councillor Derek Milligan said: “We know that simple changes can make a big difference to health.

Delicious, healthy choices

“The cafe offers lots of delicious and healthy choices such as freshly prepared soups, wholemeal sandwiches, yoghurts, mineral waters and fruit.

Affordable prices

“Having those options at affordable prices makes it much easier for us all to choose wisely when enjoying a visit to the café.”

National recognition

The Healthy Living award is a national award for the food service sector in Scotland.
