Smaller por­tions could mean bet­ter qual­ity

East Kilbride News - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

Den­ish Shetty,

pic­tured with son Shamah, said: “I don’t think it will have a huge af­fect on restau­rants. They might have to do a smaller por­tion but that money can go into more qual­ity food.”

Grace Lear­month:

“I can’t be­lieve the amount of choco­late that kids eat nowa­days. Two wee squares are a lot of calo­ries – and some of them end up eat­ing the whole bar. I’d like more done to ed­u­cate kids at school.”

Jean Brown:

“It should be left up to the in­di­vid­ual what they eat. You can’t re­ally do a lot – peo­ple will al­ways find ways around it if they want to eat more and if they start this, where does it stop with the gov­ern­ment? What is next?”

Thomas Daw­son:

“It’s about ed­u­ca­tion – not leg­is­la­tion. It’s more im­por­tant to teach peo­ple about what is bad for them. If you say to some­one that they can only have 20 chips and they want more, they will go in and buy two bags.”
