In California, Governor Schwarzenegger is reviewing a bill, SB 1420, that would require certain food chains to put their nutritional information on their menu.
Do you think that would make a difference in food choices, for you, for your children?
Just imagine, you are looking at a menu for one of your family's local fav dinner spot, and suddenly you see 600 calories next to those fries you always order. Or perhaps, 800 calories. Would you still order it?
It makes you stop and think doesn't it. Most Americans underestimate the amount of calories in a food item. I am the first to raise my hand. I was reading the book, "Eat this, Not that" by David Zinczenko. I had my mouth opened a few times. I read the calories and fat and thought, I totally got that wrong.
I am a strong advocate for this bill.
At least if we have the information and then we can decide, hopefully, make a better choice.
