I was aware that some restaurants were now starting to display calorie content on their menus but it also seems that under the same health initiative pubs will start to display the number of alcohol units a drink contains. Although the initiative is voluntary it could see beermats and pint glasses being redesigned to show consumers what proportion of their daily limit they are drinking. The scheme covers food, alcohol, physical activity, health at work and behaviour change and is designed to help people make better lifestyle choices.
