Experiencing NYC’s new menu standards

In her Monday Morning blog, UNC-Chapel Hill Public Health Dean Barbara Reimer writes about her recent trip to New York and encountering menu labeling.

I was in NYC over the weekend for a meeting. It was my first trip since menu labeling began. My husband and I went to one of our favorite restaurants, Le Pain Quotedian. It was great to have calorie counts for food and drink items on the menu. For people who heard Dr. Tom Frieden talk at our School a couple weeks ago, this was his and Michael Bloomberg’s policy. What will it take to make this a policy in North Carolina? I do wonder about the accuracy of the calorie calculations and what can be done to assure careful calculations.
