Responsibility Deal – MEND responds

Paul Sacher, the co-founder of MEND, the leading provider of free healthy lifestyle programmes for families, comments on the Responsibility Deal, announced today.  He said:  


“Families who attend our free healthy lifestyle programmes frequently tell us that they struggle to work out what is healthy when they eat out.  

“Having the information on the menu when you’re choosing what to order, will help us all to make informed choices about what we eat, which is a huge step in the right direction.  

“This isn’t about taking the fun out of eating, it’s about giving consumers the power to make food choices that are based on fact rather than assumption.

“It’s heartening to see so many companies pledging to reduce salt, sugars and unhealthy fats in their products and be more transparent about the calories in their food."
