Restaurant Association Backs Menu Labeling

The National Restaurant Association has agreed to support legislation that would require them to disclose calories on their menus. Chain restaurants with 20 or more locations would have to list on their menus the number of calories per item and would also have to make available upon request other nutritional information such as the amount of sugar, salt or cholesterol. The menu labeling law could be included in health reform legislation expected to be discussed in Congress during the next few weeks.
