I would LOVE to see folks out there in our community with knowledge and experience in the Eat 4 Life model provide some comments.

So if you can, take a few minutes and check it out...

*** Federal Menu Labeling. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is seeking public comment and information to help the agency implement a new federal law that requires the posting of calorie content and other nutrition information on menu items at certain chain restaurants and similar retail food operations and vending machines. The new law, Section 4205 of the Affordable Care Act signed into law March 23, 2010, sets uniform federal requirements for such labeling. Comments should be submitted to the FDA by September 7, 2010.
