A new league table ranking the health of children's food in 21 of the UK's most popular restaurant chains has been published today
A new league table ranking the health of childrens food in 21 of the UK's most popular restaurant chains has been published today by the Soil Association's Out to Lunch Campaign. Two years since the first league table there have been some significant positive changes - 10 chains are now serving a portion of veg or salad with every meal and 9 chains include information on where ingredients come from on the menu. While there is still work to be done it is fantastic to see restaurants taking responsibility for the role they play in influencing children's food choices. Have a look at the table here.
