Exercise labels on food proposed 英国健康专家提议食品包装需注明“运动量”

文字稿

健康专家呼吁厂商改良食品标签,在包装上标出人们要想消耗食物所含热量,需要做多少运动。英国皇家公共卫生协会在《英国医学杂志》上发表的文章中提到,该提议能够帮助降低肥胖率。以下是 Dominic Hughes 的报道。

Food and drink packaging already contains information such as calories, salt and sugar content, but the Royal Society of Public Health believes many people find this confusing. It's proposing an additional labelling system – what it calls activity equivalent calorie labelling – linking the calories consumed with the amount of exercise that would need to be done to work them off.

So a can of fizzy drink would take an adult of average height and weight about 26 minutes to walk off, a bowl of cereal, 16 minutes of running. The Food and Drink Federation says it's an interesting concept that is worth exploring.

Packaging is governed by EU-wide legislation but the Royal Society of Public Health admits that in the absence of detailed research on the impact such labelling may have on consumers at this stage there's little appetite for such a change.

1. How can consumers find out how much sugar there is in the food they eat?
By reading the label on the packaging.

False. This is an estimate for someone of average height and weight.

3. Is the Food and Drink Federation going to adopt the new labelling soon?
The article doesn't say. But the Food and Drink Federation seems to suggest that it's something to consider because it says the idea is interesting.
