Dexter House has once again been awarded the Gold in the Tower Hamlet’s Food for Health Awards – recognising caterers that have made healthy changes to menus to reduce calories, fat and sugar.
A spokesperson from The Tower Hamlets NHS who run the initiative commented:-
“This initiative was born out of the Government’s Healthy Weight Healthy Lives Strategy and NHS Tower Hamlet’s local strategy with the same name. Our Award is focused on obesity prevention so criteria are mainly aimed at reducing fat content, and therefore calories. There are three strands to the award and a Gold winner must meet all the criteria starting with the relatively easy Bronze level, then Silver and finally Gold. Dexter House won the Gold because they meet all the criteria for the three strands.”
Alan Palmer – Head Chef at Dexter House was delighted with the award and commented:-
"I’m fully behind our focus at etc.venues of serving ‘Brain Fuel’ to our delegates to make sure they stay focussed and alert in the afternoon. My challenge is then to make the food really appetising and tasty as well and this award is great recognition that we are doing a good job. With the right ingredients and good cooking skills food can be healthy tasty and satisfying at the same time."
