New calorie labelling in catered halls

By Adrian 09 May 2022

If you live in our catered accommodation, you may notice a recent change with items in your dining hall being labelled with calorie information. This information is being provided following a change in the law

The new rules are intended to help people in England make more informed, healthier food choices. It is true that calorie information can be helpful for some people, as part working towards a healthy, balanced diet. But we also recognise that this can be triggering for some people who have experience of eating distress. If you feel you are affected by issues like this, the b-eat website is a great resource for advice and for finding professional support.
