I've just read a brief article about a new law in NY (and coming soon to other states) that requires all restaurants to post the calorie content of the food they offer. The calories have to be posted in the same size font as the price.
Some other states are exploring laws that will require posting of sodium, fat, carbs, etc.
Would it stop you from ordering what you want?
Would 1500 calories for a dessert prevent you from ordering?
Would you be shocked to learn that a salad with chicken, mandarin oranges, and dried cranberries had more calories than a burger and fries?
Would you say no to the 650 calorie fat free muffin?
