The 8700 website provides information on kilojoule content in food and drink for fast food and tools to help people balance their energy intake and output to maintain a healthy weight.

The www.8700.com.au site and app were created to support NSW Government legislation requiring quick service restaurants and supermarkets to provide the kilojoule content of standard ready to eat menu items.

kJ (kilojoules) is the measure of how much energy is in food and drinks. In order to maintain a healthy weight we need to balance the energy we eat and drink with the energy we use.

kJ that aren’t used each day get stored in our body as fat and we gain weight.

That is why it’s good to know how many kJ you need each day and the number of kJ in the food and drink you consume.

On average people eat and drink around 8700kJ a day – but everyone’s different. Look for your ideal figure on 8700.com.au

When you visit 8700.com.au you’ll find the tools to guide you and your family about the amount of kJ to consume to maintain a healthy weight. You’ll also find an extensive list of kJ counts for many of the menu items at popular food outlets.

The 8700kJ mobile app is a free iPhone and Android-enabled app that gives you tools, calculators and converters, tips and the information you need to make informed food choices when you eat at larger ‘fast’ and snack food chains. And it remembers your details.
