Will Calorie Labeling in Restaurants Make a Difference?
ERS research shows that away-from-home meals and snacks tend to contain more calories and to be of lower nutritional quality than food prepared at home. Recent legislation will require chain restaurants across the United States to list calorie information on their menus and menu boards. Calorie disclosure may prompt consumers to substitute menu items that lower their caloric intakes and may encourage restaurants to offer lower calorie options.
