Plans to introduce calorie labelling on menus
To help tackle child obesity, the Government plans to introduce calorie labelling on food eaten outside the home and is consulting on how best to implement it.
Labelling would cover restaurants, cafes, pubs and takeaways, and online businesses that sell food or drink for takeaway or home delivery.
EHOs currently enforce allergy labelling so it is likely that enforcement of the new regime would also become their responsibility.
The calorie labelling consultation closes on 7 December.
