Calorie labelling for food and drink served outside of the home (England) - our response

07 December 2018

In September 2018 Department of Health and Social Care issued a consultation on making places that serve food and drink outside of the home show calorie information (calorie labelling) in England. The consultation closed on 7th December 2018.

The purpose of calorie labelling is to make sure that people have clear and accurate information about the calorie content of the food and drink that they and their families are eating when dining out, so that they can make informed and healthy choices for themselves and their children.

Although regulation suggested in this document will apply to England only, the proposed approaches are likely to impact similar policies in the devolved nations.
