Nutrition


Recommended Posts

hi all, new to this forum....

i am wondering whether anybody has come across restaurants in Oz that add any nutritional information to their menus (no including the maccas etc).

If so, what are they saying ?

cheers

Welcome Phil. I've certainly never seen any real restaurant with even a hint of nutritional info on a menu. (Not something I long for either, but that's a separate discussion.)

Last thing I need when dining out. I think you have to educate yourself before you go.

I think it's impossible for restaurants beyond the realm of fast food to have nutritional information. Nutrition facts only work when applied to set portions of set ingredients. Thus, considering that fine dining restaurants change their menus frequently, there is no possible way they could rewrite their information for each new dish. Moreover, calories should be the last thing to worry about when eating at an upscale, or any other decent restaurant. You don't go there often, so why worry. Plus, I'm pretty sure that their food would be terrifying to look at from a nutritional standpoint. Sometimes it's best not to know.
