Calorie Counts Must Appear on NYC Menus by March 31

Certain New York City restaurants literally must bulk up their menus and menu boards over the next two months. The city’s board of health voted last week to require restaurants with 15 or more units nationwide to prominently display calorie information on menus and menu boards. The ordinance affects about 10 percent of the city’s restaurants. It takes effect March 31.

What it means

Under the regulation, restaurants must display calorie information for all menu items offered at least 30 days in a calendar year, including combination meals. The information must appear as prominently as the menu item’s name or price in the restaurant and at drive-through windows.
