In November 2009, the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) launched a consultation on the draft report on energy requirements.

The draft report is a technical report that considers current UK energy intakes and physical activity levels, existing energy requirement values, new evidence on energy expenditure, and the various methods that may be used to calculate energy requirements. On the basis of their review, SACN has calculated new draft Estimated Average Requirements (EARs) for energy for the UK population for each age group and gender.

The BNF response to the consultation can be found below:

Last reviewed February 2010. Next review due June 2012.
