Blog: Hotel health

One of London’s larger hospitality businesses has become the first hotel member of the British Nutrition Foundation. It’s an unusual move but it can only be good for weary travellers sick of airplane food.
Novotel London West is situated in one of London’s swankier postcodes and boasts 629 rooms. It also has two restaurants and offers room service, which is where it can perhaps best apply the recommendations offered by the British Nutrition Foundation.
Tourists can pretty much look after themselves. After all, they’re on holiday for one or two weeks and the rest of the time they can cook for themselves. But the travelling business community can really use a hand in achieving a balanced diet and hotels can play a key role here. It is depressing enough to hit your hotel room at midnight without having to choose between a stale sandwich and a microwaved cheeseburger.
The British Nutrition Foundation is going to help the hotel develop a healthy food and beverage programme that will take in staff training, product development and portion control. I think we’ll see others follow suit.
