As of April 2022 large businesses are now required to add calorie labelling to their menus. Regulations outline that a business with 250 or more employees in England including, cafes, restaurants and takeaway service must display calories information on foods they are preparing for their customers. These measures form part of a wider government strategy to ensure people are able to make more informed, healthier choices when eating out of home.
We also know that there is a demand for healthier desserts and that people are willing to pay more for that option.
That being said, this is not an easy task when it comes to desserts, it’s critical to offer delicious dessert that is transparent in nutritional value but delivers on flavour and indulgence for those that still want that sweet treat! We made a listing of dessert options that will offer your customers sweet indulgence but can be listed on your menu as 300 calories or less.
