Call for restaurants to list calorie information on menus

Published on 27/09/2010
A government call for more restaurants to publish calorie information on their menus could help those on a health plan to fight obesity.

Health secretary Andrew Lansley has urged businesses to establish a voluntary system whereby food produces and retailers show the calorie counts of their products.

It is hoped such a scheme will help reduce obesity levels across the country and remove some of the strain on the NHS of treating people for weight-related illnesses.

"Our aim is to give people the help and advice they need to adopt a healthy lifestyle, and I want to make it as easy as possible for them to do that," he said.

"That's why we're working with industry to bring in calorie information on menus.

"As a nation we are too unhealthy. We cost the NHS billions of pounds a year through bad diet, lack of exercise and poor lifestyle choices. We can and we must improve this."

An advisory group of health experts, representatives of the food and drinks industry and campaign groups has already been set up to work with the government to help people lead healthier lives.
