Maggie Throup – 2022 Comments on New Calorie Labelling Rules

The comments made by Maggie Throup, the Public Health Minister, on 6 April 2022.

It is crucial that we all have access to the information we need to maintain a healthier weight, and this starts with knowing how calorific our food is. We are used to knowing this when we are shopping in the supermarket, but this isn’t the case when we eat out or get a take-away.

As part of our efforts to tackle disparities and level up the nation’s health, these measures are an important building block to making it as easy as possible for people to make healthier food choices.
