Al’s Kitchen is healthy choice

It's official – a Workington sandwich shop is one of the healthiest around!

HEALTHY BUSINESS: Alison Quinn, owner of Al’s Kitchen

Al’s Kitchen, on Harrington Road, has been given a healthy menu award by Allerdale council because it offers homemade, unprocessed meals, low in fat, sugar and salt.

As well as a standard menu, the shop, which opened seven years ago, offers customers a “healthy diet, healthy heart” menu, including baked potatoes with fillings such as cottage cheese.

It is a pilot scheme which is co-ordinated by Allerdale council and runs in Workington and Maryport.

Alison Quinn, owner, said: “I have always promoted healthy choices because for the past 30 years I have tried various diets.”

Aramark, which caters for staff at Eastman Chemical at Siddick, Workington, was also given an award.
