Happy Heart Eat Out Month

728 Eat Out LogolgThe Irish Heart Foundation, safefood and the HSE have joined together for this year’s Happy Heart Eat Out month which will run in hundreds of participating restaurants, workplaces and communities across the length and breadth of the country for the month of June. Carrying the theme, ‘For a Happy Heart…Think Small’, the campaign hopes to raise awareness of portion sizes when eating out, in addition to encouraging people to choose healthy options from menus.  A new recipe booklet* incorporating tasty and healthy recipes is also being developed and will be available in June free of charge.    

Participating restaurants, cafés and workplace canteens will be offering additional healthy options throughout June; plenty of fruit and vegetables and meals that are low in fat, sugar and salt and rich in fibre. A well-balanced diet is very important for a healthy lifestyle, with portion size playing its role - smaller portion sizes are not only good for the waist, they are also good for the heart.  

A range of materials, including posters, tent cards and recipe booklets are available free of charge to any restaurants or catering establishments hoping to participate. Registration forms are available from the Irish Heart Foundation website at
