Bassetlaw: Takeaways can opt into a healthier options scheme

Takeaway businesses in Bassetlaw are being supported to offer healthier choices to their customers in a new Healthier Options Takeaway merit (HOT) scheme being launched by Notts County Council with Environmental Health partners at Nottinghamshire’s district and borough councils.

Businesses that meet the criteria for the scheme will be able to display the HOT branding in their premises to let customers know that healthier options are available, and will be added to an online database on the Notts County Council website.

Takeaways will be scored on how they already sell and promote healthier alternatives, and are being asked to make at least three new pledges to make changes to their menu or practices.

The launch of the HOT scheme is just part of a wider approach to tackling obesity in Notts.
