Calorie guidelines remain unchanged, despite press reports

Public Health England has denied reports that a forthcoming campaign signals a change to guidelines on calorie consumption.

The new campaign, due to launch in the spring of 2018, aims to help people be more aware of and reduce how many calories they consume from the three main meals of the day, in particular when eating on the go. There will be a simple rule of thumb to help them do this: 400:600:600 – people should aim for 400 calories from breakfast and 600 each from lunch and dinner.
