Energy labelling for healthier selection and consumption of food or alcohol

Posted: June 14, 2021 By:

Our new systematic review protocol is now published in the Cochrane Library. This protocol is an update to a previous review published in 2018, which found that adding calorie labels to menus and next to food in restaurants, coffee shops and cafeterias, could reduce the calories that people consume, although the quality of evidence was low.

This update narrows the focus from nutritional labelling to energy labelling and broadens the range of target products to include both alcoholic drinks and food.
