CGH catering team recognised

Happy Heart Healthy Eating Awards

The catering team at Cavan General Hospital were last week recognised for their ongoing commitment to creating healthy menus for staff and visitors.

In total, 21 healthcare facilities across Ireland, providing healthier meals for almost 18,000 health service employees, were honoured this year at the Happy Heart Healthy Eating Awards for their commitment to healthy food choices.

Fifteen units across the country achieved gold awards for creating a healthier food environment.

Two sites, including Cavan General Hospital, received silver awards for their meal choices, while four were bronze winners.

The Happy Heart Healthy Eating Awards have been running for over 25 years, and are a joint initiative of the Irish Heart Foundation and the HSE.

The awards ceremony took place on November 28 at the Gibson Hotel, Dublin, where Irish Heart Foundation CEO Emma Balmaine congratulated the winners.
