British Prime Minister Boris Johnson plans to introduce restrictions on the sale of fast food in the country.
In particular, the British government intends to tighten the requirements for labeling products with a high content of sugar and salt. This is reported by the Financial Times.
The measures are aimed at reducing the number of obese Britons.
Among the proposals is to oblige large restaurants to specify the calorie content of dishes on the menu.
The Prime Minister also wants the labels of alcoholic beverages to indicate calorie content.
Johnson thought about restrictions on the sale of junk food after learning that being overweight increases the risk of getting the coronavirus.
However, such restrictions will lead to serious economic losses.
