British Government Advocates Calorie and Salt Reduction

The British government has published new voluntary calorie reduction guidelines for the food industry and is encouraging businesses to implement them.  The government cites scientific evidence that being overweight can increase health risks from Covid-19.  Obesity is thought to be a factor in the severity of the pandemic.  In addition to the calorie guidelines, the UK has also introduced new salt reduction guidelines.  Both sets of guidelines include goals, next steps and timing.
