This week our chefs will be cooking up a storm of nutritious dishes as part of British Nutrition Foundation’s (BNF) Healthy Eating Week.

The BNF initiative runs from 28th September to 4th October and is designed to help promote key health messages and habits.

At Academy we recognise the importance of eating well and our company nutritionist and award-winning development chefs design our menus to meet the latest nutrition guidance and environmental actions.

“Eating well doesn’t mean compromising on the food you love. In fact, by starting to look at use new ingredients and try different meal ideas, people find new favourites,” said Chris Ince, Chef Director.

This year’s Healthy Eating Week challenges are:

  • Eat more wholegrains
  • Vary your veg
  • Drink plenty
  • Move more
  • Be mind kind
  • Get active together
  • Eat together

Martyn Stockwin, Managing Director at Academy, said “This is a great campaign highlighting the importance of healthy eating, and we’re proud to support it.”

Our chefs have developed a special menu for the Healthy Eating Week which includes using some of the delicious seasonal foods available right now, including tomatoes, spinach, kale, courgettes and peppers.

Among some of our favourite dishes on the menu are:

  • Wholemeal quesadilla with homemade refried beans, sweetcorn and chilli
  • Panzanella Pitta pockets
  • Summer vegetable calzone
  • Vegetable frittata cups
