NUTRITIONAL LABELING ON MENUS
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced its final rules for nationwide nutritional labeling on menus and vending machines. Before the end of the year, establishments with at least 20 locations will be required to post calorie counts on all menu items, calorie boards and drive thru displays. The new rules apply to restaurants, movie theaters, pizza parlors, amusement parks, grocery stores and anywhere else ready-to-eat meals are sold. K-State Research and Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter says that making calorie information available to consumers is an important first step in helping them make informed decisions for themselves and their families.
