Award for healthy food @ The Larches

The Larches Café in Coldean has been awarded a ‘Healthy Choice’ award, as part of a joint initiative between Brighton & Hove City Council and Brighton & Hove Food Partnership.

The award is recognition of the efforts that the café has made to prepare, cook and serve food in a healthier way.

Steps towards a healthier café include adjusting the positioning of fruit on display, in order to make it more accessible to the customer and making fruit the same price as a snack bar to make it more appealing to buy.

Other changes include offering low-fat spreads on sandwiches, and salad dressings with fewer calories.

Andrew Barnett, Café Manager, said: “We are continuing to serve home-made pastries, sandwiches and light lunches but ensuring that they are served with fresh salad and vegetables, cooked in as little oil as possible. Our cakes are also healthier because they are fruit based and low in sugar.”
