Law Now Requires Restaurants To Include Calorie Count


A new rule effective today requires all restaurant chains with 20 more locations to post calorie counts of all items on the menu.

The new law is part of the 2010 Affordable Care Act and the goal is to improve public health and help Americans make more informed food choices.

Some argue, though, it’s expensive for the restaurants and a form of government overreach.

The FDA said it will be working with restaurants over the next year to help change their menus.

After that, restaurants that don’t comply with the law could face fines or even jail time.
