Today the National Restaurant Association released the following statement regarding an American Journal of Preventative Medicine report that shows America’s largest chain restaurants have significantly reduced calories in newly introduced menu items:
“The restaurant industry is continuing to showcase its commitment to wellness and meeting the desire of consumers for more healthful options. This study verifies that restaurants and chefs have made significant progress in creating new menu offerings that are both innovative and nutritious.
Through our Kids LiveWell program, the National Restaurant Association has been promoting and inspiring restaurants to expand healthier menu options for children. We have also advocated for the implementation of a nationwide menu labeling standard that provides consumers the nutritional information they need to make the choice that is right for them.”
