Is there a free online resource for British calorie counters?

Mum is trying to count calories in her recipes. Is there a free, online resource where she can look up nutritional information using British names for things (eg mince and courgettes, not ground beef and zucchini) and get the results in calories per 100g (not per 'medium item' or per 2/3 cup)?

Explanation for the American majority: you might be surprised how many differences there are between UK and US English when it comes to food, otherwise the USDA web site would be perfect. I'm surprised that our government doesn't seem to provide a similar resource.
Also we (or at least my family) tend to measure by weight rather than volume and my mother is bemused and slightly offended by the idea of measuring carrots by the cup.
