Oregon's Menu Labeling Act was passed in 2009 with the goal of providing consumers with basic nutrition information about prepared food sold at chain restaurants.
As of January 1, 2010, restaurants with 15 or more outlets nationwide must provide information regarding the calories, saturated fat, trans fat, carbohydrates and sodium in their menu items.
Nutrition labels take the guesswork out of making healthier choices when eating out. While it's probably no surprise that a bacon double cheeseburger may have a lot of calories, it may come as a shock that items like salads and smoothies can be even higher in saturated fat and calories.
