In the UK some caterers put calories on menus and others put information on lighter choices which are lower in calories.

While not everyone finds it of interest it does help those who are watching their intake make choices.

In America "The Food and Drug Administration" is now requiring the nation restaurants and coffee shops to list calories on the items on their menus.

This is information the government agency said can help Americans make healthier eating decisions.

In the UK we have the responsibility deal which people who are providing catering of all types can sign up to as a partner and agree to take steps to assist with improving health.

One of the steps is to provide calorie information on menus so that customers can make informed choices.

The following website has information on this and how to sign up.
