Answered By: 
The Mayor

The London Food Board has worked with colleagues in New York and has been inspired by their work on calorie labelling. This influenced the production of the London Food Board's Takeaway Toolkit, launched in November 2012, which provides guidance to London's local authorities on how to tackle the public health impacts of fast food in London.
