Hundreds of members of staff at Manchester City will soon be given a taste of the first-team's ultra-healthy menu, and all for free.

Silvia Tremoleda, a Catalan nutritionist and triathlete who worked with Pep Guardiola at Barcelona, has been designing menus for City's players since moving to Manchester at the start of the season.

Tremoleda even oversaw the food on offer at City's Christmas meal, when first-team players, staff and their partners were served up sushi at Deansgate's Tapeo & Wine, owned by Juan Mata, three days before their Boxing Day fixture at Hull City.

Meals given to City's players are free from sugar and gluten, while fish, fruit, vegetables and nuts feature prominently.

Starting in March, staff at the Etihad Stadium and the City Football Academy will also be able to enjoy a healthier lifestyle - during work hours, at least.

Tremoleda made a presentation at a staff meeting before Christmas and, in a bid to boost enthusiasm, it was proposed the new options would be provided free of charge.

Staff at the CFA currently pay less than £3 per day for acess to a buffet, which can include anything from pizza to quorn chile con carne.

But after a successful trial of the new menu on Thursday, it won't be long before junk food and sweet treats are strictly off the menu.
