The Mayor


In answer to my question 4299 / 2012 on fizzy drinks you replied that: 'It is important therefore that food manufacturers and retailers provide a wide choice of healthy options, with the information to help Londoners make informed choices.' Do you think fast food outlets in London should provide information on the calorific content of each menu item, as Mayor Bloomberg has insisted in New York in the battle against obesity?

Many of London's fast food restaurants chains are already providing information on the calorie content of menu items, as part of their commitment to the Government's Responsibility Deal. It should, of course, be up to consumers to make their own choices.
