TORONTO — Toronto Public Health’s new SavyDiner campaign is encouraging large chain restaurants to post calorie and sodium information on menus.
“Menu labelling means providing nutrition information on the menu or menu board in sit-down and fast-food restaurants. Menu labelling promotes food transparency and healthier eating environments. Toronto Public Health is recommending provincial legislation to make menu labelling a requirement for larger chain restaurants,” reads a statement on the Savvy Diner website.
The Savvy Diner campaign was created to raise awareness about the calorie and sodium content of restaurant meals through its website by debunking food myths and offering the results of nutrition-related studies for public consumption.
