According to this article the Harvester chain of restaurants will be the first national chain to put the calorie content on its menus. The chain will print the calorie content of every dish from a light tomato soup at 90 calories to a rather calorific mixed grill at 910 calories. Research carried out by Harvester found that customers would find the information useful rather than taking the enjoyment out of having a meal out. Although the government has called on restaurants to display information on calorie content, it is currently voluntary and as yet Harvester is in the minority in publishing the information. It will be interesting to see whether other large restaurant chains start to follow suit.
