Menu Labeling Education Programs

The national menu labeling law passed in March 2010. People across the country will start to see calorie counts on menus and menu boards by 2012. To make the most of this new information, we need education about and promotion of menu labeling.

New York State, New York City, and Seattle/King County (WA) have already implemented menu labeling policies and campaigns to help people better use that information. The campaign summaries below provide examples, model materials, focus group reports, and other tools you might find helpful in conducting your own menu labeling education campaigns.
