Hearty Lives Islington

Stir-fry noodles

Working in partnership with Islington Council, Hearty Lives Islington is a £100,000 project to improve the diets of Islington residents.

Our aim

To encourage food businesses to make their menus healthier and communicate healthy heart messages through:

  • environmental Health Officers encouraging businesses to include less salt and saturated fat in their menus
  • Healthier Food Recognition Award's for businesses that demonstrate they have taken steps to make their food healthier (customers will be able to recognise the businesses that have gained the Award by a sticker on the door or window, and an online logo). All businesses, from kebab shops to pizza take-aways, are encouraged to apply for the Award
  • the Environmental Health Team working with local businesses, such as builders merchants, to encourage them to act as heart health information points.
