Eat your way around the borough with
new Eat Well Wirral map!
WIRRAL Council's Eat Well Wirral
project has a new online map making it easier to find your local takeaway
offering healthier options.
The map means you can see; at a glance; which takeaways and fast food outlets
in Wirral have changed the way they prepare and cook some foods, giving
customers the chance to take away a healthier meal.
This can include using lower fat options, healthier cooking fats and offering
fresh fruit as an alternative to biscuits, crisps and other snacks.
Originally launched in 2015, the Eat Well Wirral scheme has been a success,
providing financial support, incentives and advice to a wide range of businesses
across the borough. More than 100 businesses are now signed up to the scheme.
Cllr Chris Jones, Wirral's Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health, said:-
"We know people enjoy a takeaway now and again and Eat Well Wirral helps
people make healthier choices.
Our award holders provide a genuine alternative to customers who use takeaways,
and we'd like to hear from other businesses who would like to get involved."
