We are changing minds through food and nutrition
Food for the Brain Accreditation is available to all food service operators and caterers who wish to develop progressive nutritional strategies or want to highlight excellent nutritional standards already in place.
The accreditation programme is focused on promoting the importance of nutrition for mental wellbeing and brain health. We believe that food service operators and caterers can play an important role in encouraging healthier food choices, which can immediately help improve focus, energy and mood, as well as support long-term mental and physical health.
In addition to accreditation, our team provides expertise in commercially viable approaches to encourage healthier eating including operational audits, action planning and menu redevelopment.
We can provide bespoke or standard training solutions to build nutritional knowledge and aid commercial implementation.

nutritious food that supports mental and physical health.

Recognition from Respected 3rd Party

A collaborative review of current operations will be conducted including menus, ingredient selection and staff training.
The outcome of the review will be a commentary on existing operations and a bespoke action plan.
Implement Action Plan
Following the initial review, we will support you in implementing the action plan. We will also deliver staff training on the principles of nutrition for brain health and the purpose of accreditation.
The first audit will take place after the implementation of the action plan. This will become an annual audit carried out on your premises. A full report will be provided following the audit.
Upon successful accreditation, a Communications Pack will be issued complete with promotional logos.

We have worked with the charity, Food for the Brain, for over 10 years as part of our Good Food Policy. They offer the only specific nutritionally focused award, carrying out annual assessment over a robust range of indicators and apart from the status of being a Food For the Brain University, we have found the process very beneficial in terms of examining how we develop our food offer.
