Warning over cinema snacks

2nd March 2010

The Food Standards Agency has said that more information should be made available about how many calories are in snacks on sale in cinemas.

The FSA has raised concerns about portion sizes and also the high levels of fat, sugar or salt in snacks sold to filmgoers. It said many cinemas do not offer smaller portion choices to customers of items such as popcorn or drinks. A large sweet popcorn from a central London cinema which weighed 375g (13oz) was likely to contain around 1,800 calories.
