Restaurants Required to Provide Calories

March 31, 2011 at 11:18 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Hey everyone, I’m sure you’ve heard of the new bill requiring restaurants that have more than 20 locations to list the nutritional information on their menus and drive-in menus.

In a story written by Sonu Wasu and Don Hatcher on wdtn.com, this new legislation was said to be heavily endorsed by the National Restaurant Association.

And not only do restaurants and fast food chains now have to list calories, all items in vending machines also have to provide nutritional information.

So next time you’re craving a Big Mac, try not to look on the menu to see the 29 grams of fat staring you in the face (or belly).

I always look at restaurant’s nutritional cites before going out to eat, and now I won’t have to!  This will make going out to each so much easier and hopefully more convenient for everyone else too.
