The Healthy Menu Choices Act came into law on January 1st in Ontario and it requires food establishments with more than 20 locations to clearly label calorie information for food and drink items. Though the act has had its fair share of criticism, partly because it fails to address nutrition, if you enjoy a good game of 'guess how many calories is in this', the new signage offers something fun to discuss with friends while you wait in line. If you're counting calories, it may actually help you make more satisfying choices.
