Abstract: Newly implemented Federal regulations require chain restaurants to post calorie contents on menus. ERS's analysis of 2007-14 data found that total daily calorie intakes were lower for consumers who saw and used nutrition or health information on restaurant menus relative to those who saw but did not use the information.
