Calorie Counts on Menus
A recent study shows that New York City's requirement that fast-food restaurants post calorie counts on menus led one in six customers to notice the information and buy foods with fewer calories.
Although it sounds like a small number, it represents almost 20%! People slowly are becoming more conscious and making changes to their diets. Also, it forces restaurants to offer lower calories options.
Once again, kudos to mayor Bloomberg for passing this law in NYC!
