RESTAURANTS have been getting the low down on how to make their menus more healthy at a two-hour workshop in London’s East End.

The workshop was run to help them understand how they can make small changes to make their dishes more nutritious and better for their customers.

It was run by the local Environmental Health & Nutrition and Dietetics departments as part of the new Tower Hamlets healthy eating’ programme.

SMALL CHANGES

Public health dietician Michele Sandelson, from NHS Tower Hamlets, stressed how small changes in preparing meals could make an impact people’s diet and potentially reduce obesity and cardiovascular disease.

Those attending the seminar included Mudchute Farm café on the Isle of Dogs, caterers at Barclays in Canary Wharf, the Mildmay Hospital trust at Shoreditch and the London Fire Brigade.

Three more seminars are planned on November 10, January 29 and March 31, which can been booked by phone on: 020-7364 5008
