'Once a week' labels welcomed by healthy eating campaigners
Healthy eating campaigners have welcomed a move by the firm behind popular brands of ready-made sauces to label how frequently their food should be eaten.
Mars, which makes Dolmio pasta sauces and Uncle Ben's products, says some items should only be consumed once a week due to high salt, sugar or fat content.
Mars Food said it would distinguish between "everyday" and "occasional" items on packs and its website.
Speaking to Joanna Gosling on the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme, Jenny Rosborough from Action on Sugar, said it was a good first step but more regulation was needed in the food industry.
