Can you spot the healthier option?

Millions of Brits are still completely unaware of calories in everyday foods, according to a survey by the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF).

The poll found that the use of terms like 'light' or 'reduced fat' is confusing consumers.

The international cancer charity said we need to have a better understanding of which foods are high in calories because obesity is a key factor in causing a range of diseases from cancer and heart disease to diabetes.

Burger King XL Double Whopper or a Burger King Double Cheese Burger with Bacon?

Deep pan pepperoni pizza or a thin crust pepperoni pizza?

Avocado and crabstick salad or Goat's cheese salad?
