|TAKING A STAND - Shape Up America! Calls For Calorie Information In Restaurants, Delis, and Other Retail Food Outlets
Adults, teenagers and children old enough to make their
own food choices need Calorie and other nutrition
information in order to make wise food selections.
Shape Up America! urges all restaurants, delis, food
service operations and other retail food outlets in
America provide accurate and complete nutrition
information to their customers where they need it the
most - at the point of purchase. Accurate Calorie
information should appear (in a type size at least as
large as the price) on the printed menu or menu board
that consumers customarily rely on to make their
purchase decisions. Additional nutrition information
should be made available to consumers upon request.
This information should contain the following data per
serving for each food item on the menu, including
Total Fats (grams)
Saturated Fats (grams)
Total Sugars (grams)
Dietary Fiber (grams)
To obtain this information, restaurants and other retail
food outlets should identify a Registered Dietitian (R.D.)
or other qualified professional to provide the above
information. Any qualified professional with access to
the appropriate software can easily provide the above
information based on accurate recipe and serving size
information. Organizations seeking a qualified R.D. can
consult the American Dietetic Association website
www.eatright.org or call 1-800-877-1600
