Regulation of food & drink portion sizes and bulk buy offers – end the value-for-money discrimination against regular portion buyers vs going large

Additional Information

Food portions are excessive. At the cinema a regular popcorn & drink may cost £6.60 but "go large for 55p" & "go XL" offers exist. The value-for-money appeal of food bulk buy offers contributes to obesity & waste.

Food portions at all outlets should be calorie, sugar & fat counted and the counts displayed prominently & on menus. Then the consumer can choose an item, knowing its beneficial, harmful or excessive content. All relevant food outlets should offer a main course portion of less than 400 calories & a starter (inc. snacks) or dessert (inc. ice cream / sweets) of less than 200 calories.

Food portions, incl. fast food, meal deals, 2 for 1, BOGOF & BOGOHP should be regulated. The same applies to bulk buys of alcohol – ban them altogether because they encourage binge drinking.

End discrimination by value-for-money of portion sizes. Allow proportional prices only.
DEFRA to provide suitable regulation legislation & enforcement.
