    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 beverages: Calories Total Fats (grams) Saturated Fats (grams) Cholesterol (mg) Carbohydrates (grams) Total Sugars (grams) Protein (grams) Dietary Fiber (grams) Sodium (mg) Calcium (mg)

    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
