Petition Calorie information displayed on food menus should never be a legal requirement in Wales.

In England, as of Wednesday 6 April 2022 new rules require calorie information to be displayed on menus and food labels.

This petition is to make the Welsh Government aware of how damaging this can be to those who struggle with disordered eating and to encourage calorie information to be kept off of menus in Wales, unless personally requested in advance.

"This new legislation creates one more barrier to people in recovery building a healthy & relaxed relationship with food. People should be able to make food choices based on situation and enjoyment, rather than fear." - Megan Jayne Crabbe, Body Acceptance Role Model/Activist/Author
