Implementation of the menu labeling law is finally here! A new law, effective in May 2018, requires chain restaurants and other prepared food retailers with 20 or more locations to provide calorie counts on the menu and offer additional nutrition information upon request. So, not only will you have more information about the calories, but you can find out how much sodium, saturated fat, and sugar is in the dish.
Look for these changes on the menu. We hope they will help you in making healthier choices.

And, we want to thank the hundreds of you who have fought for menu labeling over the last year. Hundreds of you sent letters to the FDA, and hundreds more spread the word on social media on the importance of the law.
