Full-Service Restaurants Do Not Inform Customers About Nutritional Count Of Their Meals

January 8, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. researchers who studied more than 2,600 full-service restaurant menus report that entrees, appetizers and side dishes served in these eateries are high in calories, saturated fat and sodium. Nutrition information provided at these restaurants – including 21 national chains – lags behind information provided by fast-food chains. The researchers said restaurants need to educate customers about the nutritional content of their foods because consumers eating out often choose energy-dense, high-sodium meals that lead to numerous diet-related diseases and conditions, beginning with obesity.
