The Guide to Healthier Menus for Children

Encouraging children to eat healthily at a young age will help them develop healthy eating patterns for life. Because a significant number of visits to catering establishments in Scotland include young children, this guide has been developed to help meet the demand for healthier menus for children ages 2-12 years old. It covers key areas where changes could be made to give children healthier options, such as including at least one portion of vegetables and/or fruit with each meal, and replacing sugar sweetened drinks with water or milk. If your business has a children’s menu or is considering developing one then this guide will help you make it easier for children to have healthier choices.

Healthier Catering Suggestions

The FSS have created a series of healthier catering suggestion sheets to support businesses in making changes to their menus and catering practices to provide healthier options for customers.
