Bigger best before date labels on food

Bigger best before date labels on food

Make "best before" date labels larger so people with eyesight problems can read them

Why is this important?

I am a support worker and much to my shame I had not thought of this until a tenant mentioned it this week as she likes to be independent, she likes to be involved in all aspects of her life and you would think this would be an easy one.

Anyone with sight difficulties would have to go around carrying a magnifying glass to see most of these dates. A simple fix would be for food manufacturers to increase the size of these labels.
