Do you know what's really in your food?

Spending more time at home can make it far too easy to reach into the cupboard for a sugary snack, when you’re in need of an afternoon pick-me-up. But do you know which foods you should be choosing? Have a go at our quiz to test your knowledge!

In a survey of 2,000 British adults, we have discovered that as much as 44 percent of people don’t know what their daily calorie intake should be. From sugar to salt, the survey reveals that a whole host of Brits are oblivious to the daily recommendations advised by the World Health Organisation.
