Calorie labelling may end up in healthcare reform

“The disclosure of calories on chain restaurant menus is no longer just a question of local policy; it is now–due in no small part to Margo’s efforts–a part of the pending health care reform legislation.  If health care passes, so does menu labeling!  What’s remarkable to me is how quickly the policy has progressed in just a couple years — from a mere proposal among public health advocates, to a controversial regulation in a single city, to a measure that’s been adopted by local governments nationwide, to a component of one of the most important pieces of federal legislation in a generation.”
