Coffee shops can be as unhealthy as fast food chains and use misleading names to make their food seem less calorific, according to the Government’s top nutritionist.
Muffins with names such as “lemon and poppy seed” mislead customers into believing they are healthy and should come with bigger calorie content signs, Dr Alison Tedstone has suggested.
She said that while consumers understand that the main products in fast food chains can be highly calorific, in coffee shops “often you’ve got no idea”.
Why actually have democracy if people are too stupid to understand that muffins might have a calorie or three hundred in them?
This is logically true too. The stupider they think we are the less reason there is for a democracy in which we get to choose who they are, no?
