Uber Eats has launched a new feature on its in-apps menus that display nutritional information.
The food delivery app has integrated a functionality where restaurants can display nutritional information and calories to the dishes their are selling through the application.
Leon, Burger King and Pizza Hut are the first restaurants to utilise the new function, with more to trial it soon.
The move follows the UK Government’s announcement that large restaurant chains and hospitality businesses will need to display nutritional information on their menus and food labels from April 2022.
With 28% of the British adult population classified as obese, and 63% as overweight, the Government is putting in place plans and programmes in a bid to fight the obesity epidemic.
It recently announced that it’s developing an app, to be launched next January, that will reward users who swap fast food for fresh, healthy produce.
The app will also track physical activity and will offer discounts, free tickets and other rewards to those following a healthy lifestyle.
