Kudos has launched a heart health campaign across its cafes and venues all around the country to support the British Heart Foundation, whilst raising awareness on maintaining good health and wellbeing.
Some of the Kudos cafes beating a healthy heart include The Green Bean Coffee House on Holloway road, London, The Porcupine Pantry in Penshurst, The Floral Café in New Brighton, as well as The Wilson Café in Cheltenham.
Venues such as the John Smiths stadium in Huddersfield, Central Hall Westminster (Wesley’s Café) and Brighton Centre are also engaged, launching nutritious dishes, plenty of food for thought and a healthy dose of fun in putting it all together.
Chief Executive of Kudos, Matthew Herter, commented, “We continue our ongoing wellbeing drive by introducing healthy and delicious menu options, as well as raising awareness of how serious the issue of heart disease in the UK really is.
'We feel it’s important to support the British Heart Foundation, who is playing a pivotal role in tackling heart disease and we also took the opportunity to highlight the small things we can do to make a big impact to our health.”
New Executive Chef at Kudos, Joanna Bell, has come on board last month and conjured up some exciting recipes, full of healthy and wholesome nutrition, including a spiced chicken, spinach and sweet potato stew, high in fibre and low in fat.
For salad-lovers looking to keep energised, there is a vibrant beetroot and lentil vegan tabbouleh being served too. Teams also discussed issues of cholesterol and how lifestyle choices can impact heart health such as eating a balanced diet, staying active for at least 30 minutes a day and quitting smoking.
On Valentine’s Day, Kudos will launch a special treat, dark chocolate bark with roasted almonds and pumpkin seeds. For every treat sold, £1 will go to British Heart Foundation, supporting life-saving research into heart and circulatory disease. According to British Heart Foundation, seven million people in the UK live with heart and circulatory diseases, and these diseases are responsible for more than quarter of all deaths.
