Eating out is a big part of our lives. People in Belfast eat at least one in six meals outside the home.
We’re encouraging food businesses in Belfast to help make eating out easier for anyone who has an allergy or is watching their weight by asking them to display calories on their menus, so customers can make informed choices.
In partnership with the Food Standards Agency Northern Ireland, we’re promoting MenuCal, a free online tool to help businesses easily calculate the calories in their dishes, as well as any allergens.
Food businesses that use MenuCal to display the calories in their dishes include:
- Fish City, 33 Ann Street, Belfast
- Tony and Jens, 727 Lisburn Road, Belfast
If you are a local business and want to start using Menucal visit www.menucalni.co.uk
Please let us know if you are displaying calorie content on your menus, so we can list your business online as a calorie wise business.
When you set up your own account, you can save recipes and you calories and allergens will automatically be identified. There is a short training video to help you get started.
