Eat Smart! Certification
The more we become aware of the benefits of healthy eating, the more we desire that food premises serve good and healthy foods. Today, adding healthy food choices to menus is the way to keep health-conscious clients satisfied. This is why more and more food establishments are choosing to become Eat Smart! certified.
Eat Smart! is an award program that recognizes Ontario workplaces as well as recreational centres for achieving excellence in providing healthy food choices and a healthy environment for consumers.
In order to qualify for Eat Smart! certification, workplaces and recreation centres must offer:
- healthier food choices, including vegetables and fruits, and lower fat options and substitutions
