A KENDAL care home has become the latest organisation to be granted South Lakeland District Council's Healthier Menus award.

Heron Hill Care Home was awarded its certificate for showing it is able to keep high standards of hygiene, provide healthier food choices on the menu every day, and show that healthier techniques and ingredients are used.

The aim of the Healthier Menus Award is to encourage food businesses and staff canteens to provide wholesome, healthy food choices on their menu.
