"The restaurant industry has an important journey along the road to improved hea lth and customer satisfactionâ according to Kim Blum, MS, RD, at KB Nutrition Consul ting in Dallax, TX. â The FDA released proposed menu regulations on April 1, 2011, wh ich detail how the restaurant industry must implement the new rulesâ , Ms. Blum expla ined. â Per the FDA, retail food establishments with 20 or more locations doing busin ess under the same name and with substantially the same menu items, will be requ ired to clearly list the calorie information on their menus. This is great news for nutrition educators and customers alike! Since 76% of adults said they are t rying to eat healthier now at restaurants than they did two years ago (National Restaurant Association Top Ten Facts in 2011), this is the perfect opportunity f or restaurants to highlight foods on their menu boards that meet certain calorie and nutrient guidelines. In addition, 54% of Americans polled for the American Dietetic Association Nutrition and You: Trends 2008 survey say it takes too much time to keep track of their diet. Since Americans now consume about one third o f their total calories on foods prepared outside the home, it is critical for nu tritional information to be available at restaurants in order to help consumers make informed decisions. â This journey can be simple and rewarding. Once restaurants move forward to display nutritional information on their menu boards as well as identify healthier menu items, they will meet consumer needs and help Americans lead healthier lifestyle s."
