The report recommends the introduction of a calorie menu labelling scheme for food service businesses. The report also recommends that the scheme should be operated on a voluntary basis initially to allow a period of time for the development of a system, including technical tools, to support the food service sector.
One Hotel Group in Ireland that contacted me to say they are already offering a comprehensive nutritional analysis of each dish on their menus is Carton House based in Maynooth, Co. Kildare.
Their restaurant's menus include allergen & lifestyle symbols with calorie counting and provide an online nutritional breakdown on their website for guests to check out meal options in advance.
