COVID has changed almost everything about daily life – and now it is set to see portion sizes of our favourite grub slashed.
Public Health England is asking supermarkets and fast-food outlets to cut calorie counts on best-selling snacks to help us stay in better shape to fight off coronavirus. The voluntary guidelines could see takeaways capped at 1,345 calories, while all pizzas will be limited to 1,230.
Public health minister Jo Churchill said: “We can all do our bit to stay healthy, to help protect us from coronavirus and take pressure off the NHS.”
Chips, crisps, garlic bread and sausage rolls will face restrictions in the new proposals, with portions reduced by up to 80 per cent.
