The Healthy Living Award enables organisations to provide healthier food and finding ways for their consumers to make better food choices. The Scottish Consumer Council have agreed to train a local assessor for their Healthy Living Award scheme and part of this training involves shadowing their current assessors to gain experience of the procedures, as well as going through a full day extensive training.
This will allow NHS Western Isles to become the only assessors on the Western Isles, providing expert nutritional advice and ensuring organisations adhere to legal requirements. For further information contact Mary Maclean, Fas Fallain Manager, tel. 01851 702712.
