One little-known but important law that’s been passed along with the U.S. health care bill: restaurants with more than twenty locations will have to post calorie counts of all items on their menus. This change promises to discourage sales of high calorie coffee drinks as much as it harms sales of Big Macs.
The big losers here are going to be fatty cheese and red meat items. Expect people to be ordering more chicken and plant-based foods instead.
The law won’t take effect for a year, but I’d expect many chains to begin updating their menus right away. Link.
