WOG Healthier Catering Policy

Poor dietary choices (i.e. high intakes of sugar, refined staples such as white rice and noodles, saturated fat) are a significant risk factor for chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. As such, the Singapore government introduced a Whole-of-Government (WOG) Healthier Catering policy which came into effect on 1st April 2017, to encourage healthier eating as a norm outside the home, in our community and workplaces. 

The WOG Healthier Catering policy outlines what Government Procuring Entities (GPEs) must do to provide public sector employees and members of the public with healthy food and drink choices at government-organised functions and events where catered food is provided.
