(AP) — In this July 18, 2008 file photo, calories of each food item appear on a McDonalds drive-thru menu in New York.
Like it or not, many restaurant diners will soon know more about what they are eating under menu labeling requirements proposed Friday by the Food and Drug Administration. The requirements will force chain restaurants with 20 or more locations, along with bakeries, grocery stores, convenience stores and coffee chains, to clearly post the amount of calories in each item on menus, both in restaurants and drive-through lanes. The new rules will also apply to vending machines where calorie information isn't already visible on the package. (AP Photo/Ed Ou, File)Read FDA Proposes Calorie Counts On Menus
