Wispa Has It Chocolate Bars Are Getting Smaller

Just as Toblerone-gate settled, news broke this weekend that manufacturers of some of the UK's favourite chocolate bars, including Kit Kat, Dairy Milk and Mars, are set to reduce the size of their bars by 20% in order to meet government targets on reducing sugar. The first comment we saw was "Ill just buy two bars then." Meaning in actual fact they will end up eating more than they would have in the first place. It's hard not to draw parallels between this and Little Britain's Marjorie Dawe's "It's only half the calories, so I can have twice as much!" skit. The problem is, no doubt this will be the reaction many of us have.

So what can we do to curb those sugar cravings? We posed the question to nutritionist Rob Hobson, and could not have come up with a better answer. His advice? Eat more! According to research, nutrient deficiencies can make sugar cravings worse, as some nutrients appear to improve blood sugar control, including chromium, vitamin B3 and magnesium. Hobson says "The best thing you can do is eat a diet that is rich in protein, healthy fats and fibre, which will help maintain your blood sugar levels."  

And it's exactly that diet that we're here to make easier for you to maintain. Whether it's delivering nutritionist-designed meals to your door each morning or having as much variety on our menus as we can, with weekly hot specials at the delis (tomorrow we'll be saying hello to a delicious thai green curry).
