Calorie Counts On Menus Do Work!

People given nutrition information eat 45 fewer calories per meal (but it doesn’t sway them towards healthier desserts).

 

People who know how many calories are in their food choose to eat more healthily, a study has found.

 

While millions enjoy meals out at restaurants and cafes, chef-cooked food can be surprisingly fattening. Researchers have discovered that people actively choose healthier options when they can see how many calories are in their meals. In a study, people reduced their calorie intake by three per cent when they were given a menu with the nutritional information on it.

 

But people still treat themselves – despite a small reduction in calories in their appetisers and main courses, dessert and drink choices were unchanged.
