Calorie listing will be helpful, but the only way this legislation is going to work is through education. It really is up to the person to understand more what really goes into their foods with respect to the way it is prepared and served. In the end, hopefully, people will learn how to prepare food for themself that tastes great and meets their health objectives.
A typical meal at a restaurant includes enough calories for a half a day or even a whole days worth.
Right now this legislation is helping curb calorie eating by 100 calories per person.
This is not a restaurant issue, it is a consumer issue. Consumers have to care if it is going to work.
