A play café in Nailsea has been presented with a silver award for promoting healthy eating.
Young Possum’s Imaginarium, which opened in September, is the first food business to be given a silver award by North Somerset Council.
The council’s food safety officers are rewarding caterers who make it easier for their customers to make healthier choices when they eat out.
The play café was set up by two trained teachers after they won Crown Glass Shopping Centre’s Win a Shop competition.
Young Possum’s Imaginarium is run by Melina Snell and Lorna Dukes.

Melina said: “As mums ourselves, we understand only too well the importance of not only healthy eating in children but also giving children the ability to make healthy choices.
“We were therefore keen to offer a range of healthy affordable food for both adults and children.”

The award aims to encourage businesses to provide healthier options to customers, through the use of healthier catering practices, increasing fruit, vegetables, and starchy carbohydrates, and decreasing fat, sugar and salt.
It also recognises provision of healthy options for children, and rewards staff training, promotion and marketing of options which are good for people to eat.
