NANNY STATE: Theresa May Unveils Plans To Force McDonald’s To SHRINK Big Macs

THE TORIES plan to force takeaways and restaurants such as McDonald’s to SHRINK big macs, pizzas and other favourite treats under nanny-state plans to rule the lives of those they rule.

Popular menu items such as Big Mac’s and other Burgers will be forced to shrink and pizzas could be forced to lose their toppings under Government plans to cap the calories in thousands of meals sold in fast-food joints, takeaways, restaurants and supermarkets.

Pies, ready meals and sandwiches will also be subject to the new proposed calorie limits, in a desperate bid to tackle Britain’s obesity crisis.

Under the daft…sorry, draft proposals, a standard pizza for one should contain no more than 928 calories – far less than many sold by takeaways, restaurants and shops. And the recommendations suggest that a savoury pie should contain no more than 695 calories.

Public Health England (PHE) said “drastic” measures were needed to combat Britain’s obesity crisis.

Their plans will see recommended limits on thousands of regularly consumed foods, including cooking sauces, soups, burgers and processed meats according to The Telegraph.

Earlier this week officials met with retailers, manufacturers, including Dominos’s pizza, Deliveroo, Just Eat, McDonalds and KFC to discuss proposed “calorie caps” on thousands of popular foods.
