Last week, the Food and Drug Administration announced calorie labeling rules for all prepared foods sold in establishments that have 20 or more locations, such as restaurant and grocery chains.
The labels must be “clear and conspicuous” on menus, menu boards and displays. Companies have one year to comply. Looking at the calorie content may make some people leery of adding fries to their double cheeseburger. On the other hand, it may make some food healthier.
