Tuck IN to a better takeaway


Tuck IN is an Essex-wide campaign, working alongside independent local takeaways, cafes, restaurants and sandwich bars.  It aims to reduce salt, sugar and saturated fat in foods by changing how foods are selected, prepared and served to ‘make food better’ and encourage positive lifestyle choices.
Although these changes are small, they can have a huge impact on the health of customers, especially if these foods are consumed regularly.

By making the pledge to Tuck IN, businesses will be provided with free access to an online nutrition training course for a member of their staff and provide customers with a wider choice of foods.

For customers wishing to Tuck IN to better food, just look for the purple Tuck IN sign in the shop window.
