Government anti-obesity campaign proposes mandatory calorie labelling

by User Not Found | Jun 26, 2018
Health secretary Jeremy Hunt explained that the government may allow small restaurants to be exempt from the calorie count regulation.
In its campaign to cut childhood obesity by half by 2030, the UK Government is considering a mandatory calorie labelling law on menus in restaurants, cafés and takeaways.

The proposal also calls for a ban on junk food TV advertising before 9pm and a ban on the sale of energy drinks to children under sixteen. Along with this, preventing stores from displaying unhealthy foods at checkouts and including it in ‘buy one get one free’ deals is also on the agenda, as is a ban on unlimited refills of unhealthy food and drinks.
