Big Daddy health risk
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.
