Writing on the Wall

Nutrition Information on Restaurant Menus

Half-Day Symposium in Five Canadian Cities

In September, 2012, experts on New York City's pioneering menu labelling bylaw joined local experts, policy-makers and health advocates in five Canadian cities to explore effective measures to equip restaurant customers with calorie and sodium information to guide their dining choices and motivate restaurant owners to make the offerings more nutritious. Writing On The Wall was well attended by dietitians, health advocates, policy-makers, restaurant owners, researchers, journalists and others interested in the health and informed consumer choice for restaurant customers.
