House Democrats’ Health Care Bill Includes Important Menu Labeling Provision
The Affordable Health Care for America Act empowers consumers to make healthy and nutritious choices by requiring chain restaurants to list calorie counts for each menu option. This provision is great news for the millions of Americans who want to make informed decisions about the food they eat. Now, Americans can walk into a restaurant and compare calories so they can choose the food option that will best fit their health and wellness needs. By enabling more Americans to eat healthier this provision will drive down the number of Americans battling chronic illnesses like heart disease and diabetes, make health care more affordable and create a healthier, more productive population.
