Is there no simple method of estimating points based on the calorie and fat information on packaged food, or are they specificly obscure about such things to protect their interests?

Packaged food is fine - they have a calculator on the website where I enter the number of calories and the amount of saturated fat, then that comes back with a figure in points. They don't reveal the exact formula, but this is probably the only real life example where simultaneous equations would be useful ("You can buy 2 apples and 3 bananas for £1.50...").

The problem comes if I get unpackaged food, e.g. a jacket potato with grated cheese/beans at the staff canteen, or a panini with cheese and tomato on SJA duty. I try to avoid the problem by making my own lunch, but sometimes I'm insufficiently organised.

Ah ok, I was assuming you were buying packaged sandwiches. :)
