Menu Labeling Drives Customers to Healthier Restaurant Options

Customers who dined at restaurants with nutrition information printed on menus purchased items with fewer calories compared to customers who dined at unlabeled restaurants, according to a study published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine. A research team led by the Drexel University School of Public Health found that customers who ate at restaurants that made nutrition information available purchased 155 fewer calories, 224 milligrams less sodium and 3.7 grams less saturated fat than customers at restaurants without labeling.
