Chocolate bars slimmed in obesity fight

King-sized Mars and Snickers chocolate bars will be cut down to size in Britain next year as a leading food manufacturer responds to growing pressure about portion distortion and rising levels of obesity.
The over-sized snacks, some weighing as much as 100 grams (3.5 ounces) and containing 387 calories, will be cut into “two shareable portions”.
The move by Masterfoods follows fast-food giant McDonald’s decision to add salads to its traditional hamburger and fries menu and to provide pedometers in adult “happy meals”.
