It’s often difficult to estimate the carb or calorie content of a meal choice from a restaurant, cafe or shop.
As part of our Food Upfront Campaign, we’d like to see food businesses displaying clearer and more accessible information. This will help people living with diabetes to make informed food choices.
From April 2022 restaurants, cafes and take-aways who employ more than 250 people will legally have to display the calorie content on their menus.
If you have type 1 diabetes, it’s important to know the carb content in a serving of food or drink, so you can adjust how much insulin you need.
Our list below includes popular chains who have provided the calorie content per serving. They’ve also included the carbohydrate, sugar, fat and salt content in each serving. This information can make it easier to understand how the food or drink on the menu could impact your individual diabetes goal.
Simply click the relevant link to explore the menu and find out everything you need to know to manage your diabetes effectively.
Please note that we are not endorsing any particular establishment or food choice. We have consciously included all types of outlets for your reference, so that you can make healthier choices. As always, we promote a healthy, balanced diet as part of your diabetes management.
If you’re aware of any other cafes, restaurants or bars that share the nutritional information of their menu online, we’d love to add them to our list. Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This February, challenge yourself to swap processed food with healthy, home-cooked meals.
