Big Daddy health risk

The People - - NEWS FEATURES - By Nada Farhoud

A BUMPER full English break­fast sold at Mor­risons con­tains 2,230 calo­ries – mak­ing it one of the un­health­i­est in Bri­tain.

In a Sun­day Peo­ple probe of high street break­fasts we asked top di­eti­cian He­len Bond to test them out.

She found the su­per­mar­ket café’s Big Daddy, be­ing sold this month to mark Father’s Day, has 34 grams of sat­u­rated fat – more than three Big Macs.

It also con­tains nine grams of salt – the same as 19.5 bags of salted crisps.

Cam­paign­ers slated the re­tailer for its huge meal – over 70 per cent big­ger than its stan­dard break­fast.

Tam Fry of the Na­tional Obe­sity Fo­rum said both firms were “to­tally ir­re­spon­si­ble” for serv­ing up the break­fasts, and added that many would be eaten by peo­ple who did not know the dan­gers of overeat­ing.

Mor­risons said the £6 Big Daddy, with three sausages and three rash­ers of ba­con, was meant to be a “spe­cial daddy-sized treat”.

Of­fi­cial guide­lines state a healthy break­fast should have 400 calo­ries at most.

AN MOT tester was booked by traf­fic cops for driv­ing a car which was over­due an MOT test, in Long Ea­ton, near Not­ting­ham.
