Health & Wellbeing
We are committed to helping our customers maintain a healthy, balanced life in a number of ways
We know that living a healthy lifestyle is important to our customers and their families, but we also know that it isn’t always easy to achieve this whilst juggling work, family and budgets. Read on for more details on how we help our customers maintain a healthy lifestyle:
We are constantly re-developing our products in line with government guidelines to reduce sugar, salt and calories and include one of your 5-a-day where possible. Over the last few years, we have removed 168 tonnes of sugar from our soft drinks and 2.9 tonnes of salt from crisps and snacks. On our own brand products, we include calories and nutrition “traffic light” information on front of the pack so that our customers can make informed decisions on a balanced diet and occasional treats. We will also include other information, such as 1 of your 5-a-day or fibre content where relevant.
On the Go
Our stores stock a wide range of healthy options including fruit and vegetables, nuts and fruit snack pots. For a protein boost on the go, we offer snack packs of cooked chicken and boiled eggs ready to eat. We also always endeavour to offer customers a choice of lower calorie options as part of our range. A significant proportion of our sandwich range is under 400 calories and a proportion of our ready meal range is under 600 calories.
We include information on the number of alcohol units and calories on the back label of our SPAR brand range of beers, wines and spirits.
We support a number of activities across the UK linked to health, wellbeing and exercise, for example Disability Sport Wales, Lancashire Schools Games, Belfast City Marathon, Scottish Women’s Football and many more, click on the links below for more details on how we support these activities.
