Eating out of home

In Scotland, we consume roughly a quarter of our calories away from our homes, such as through restaurants, cafes and takeaways. This means the sector has a big influence on the quality of our overall diets. Currently, a lot of the food eaten out of the home in Scotland is bad for our health, while also served in oversized portions with fewer healthy options available in comparison. Here you will find information on how this area affects our health and our evidence-based advocacy positions for improving the sector.
