Diabetic Labelling Changes - July 2016

Some of your meals / desserts used to say they were diabetic but they don’t know.  How come / what’s changed?

 In terms of the meals / desserts on offer nothing has changed at all.  What has happened is since July this year (2016) new legislation has been brought in stating that food is no longer able to be labelled as ‘diabetic’ or ‘suitable for diabetics’.  The reason for this is that the European Commission believe;

  • You do not require specific food for people with diabetes
  • People with diabetes should be able to meet their dietary needs by appropriate selection from everyday foods. 

 So basically eat a healthy, balanced diet – which includes a variety of foods from each of the main food groups.   Providing a healthy, well balanced meal is at the heart of Park Care Meals.   All of our meals are nutritionally well balanced and are in line with the recommended government guidelines.  All are free from added salt and preservatives.  We offer a wide variety of meals with over 40 different options.  Therefore we are confident you will be able to find something that is suitable..
