ABSTRACT
The article reports on the opposition by the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservice Association of posting calorie information on menus. According to the association, it would be punitive on the part of the restaurant industry to require such information since there is inadequate evidence of substantial health gains in doing so. Moreover, it mentions that the requirement on calorie information posting in the U.S. was part of the health reform package of U.S. President Barack Obama.
