Your favourite junk food could be banned in the UK with meals like pizzas, Big Mac and KFC Mighty Bucket all under threat.
High Calorie Burgers and Pizza could soon be BANNED in the UK!
A new report released to the Government has called for a range of drastic measures to cut obesity in the UK.
They include banning unhealthy food from sports venues and placing a cap on the number of calories allowed in a restaurant meal.
Chief medical officer, Dame Sally Davies, is urging the Government to force cafés, pubs and takeaways to axe high-calorie burgers, chicken dishes and pizzas, reports The Daily Star.
If approved, the calorie limit for a single meal would be likely to be set at around 951 calories.
That rules out meals like Nando’s 1/2 medium chicken, regular peri salted chips and peas which is a total of 1,185 calories, and McDonald’s Big Mac meal and the double quarter pounder with cheese and large fries meal at 1,194 calories.
KFC’s Mighty Bucket For One at 1,235 calories would also be banned.
UK Hospitality chief executive Kate Nicholls said: “A blanket cap on calories for all portions of food and drink consumed out-of-home sounds like a knee-jerk and unfair measure.”
