You will soon be able to count your calories when you eat out

Aug 02, 2020 15:50 IST

Do you ever think what your calorie intake is like when you binge eat at a favourite restaurant? Well, there will soon be a way to find out. Menus at restaurants across India will soon start mentioning the nutritive value of the food you're being served. This means that you will be able to count the calories you consume whenever you eat out. The move is a part of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India's 'Eat Right Initiative', and will apply to restaurateurs who have more than 10 food chains. So far, its voluntary, but authorities may come up with an order to make it mandatory. Alongside each dish on the menu, the amount of vitamins, calories, fats and carbohydrates in it will also be mentioned. Not just that, the menu will also mention potential allergens present in the food, including gluten, groundnuts and soyabean. With the govt making healthy eating habits a priority, you have no reason to complain.
