BC Informed Dining adds nutritional value to menus

Starbucks, McDonald's and Tim Hortons are joining restaurant chains in providing nutritional information on their menu items. 

The province announced Wednesday it is expanding its 'Informed Dining' program to 19 national restaurant chains. The program provides sodium content and caloric data on menu choices and will now be featured in 2,000 restaurant outlets in B.C.

When the program first launched in 2012, it was only adopted by 300 outlets.
