Indian restaurants and hotels to display the nutritional value of food items on Menu card
This huge step taken by the FSSAI proves to be a major advantage for the diet-conscious citizens of India. According to the report, under the new rules of menu levelling, it is now compulsory for restaurants and hotels to include the nutritional value of the food on the menu card. This is so that citizens can grasp their calorie intake or how many calories a certain food item has. Apart from that, the menu must also include the level of clothing theory to be written next to it.
This initiative introduced by the Government of India applies to restaurants with more than 10 chains or branches. Whereas, companies with a central license too need to provide calorie information on the menu card. That’s not it, it will also include how much calorie is enough for a person or how many calories should a certain type of person consume. As per the reports, the FSSAI has been trying to improve the level of regulation since a long time.
So next time you enter a restaurant, don’t forget to check out the menu, display board or booklets for the particular dish’s nutritional value. Even your favourite fast food joints such as Pizza Hut, Dominoes, McDonald’s will have to display the nutritional value of their meals. According to a news portal, one 100 gram pizza contains around 240 calories. On the other hand, an active person will require 2,000 calories. In this manner, every citizen’s calorie intake varies. Some may require more, while some may require less. Hence, this initiative started by the government helps you determine how many calories should you consume.
