Symposium about including nutrition information on restaurant menus comes to five Canadian cities
A five-city symposium series about putting nutrition information on chain-restaurant menus is coming to Canada. The symposium series, called Writing on the Wall, will be presented from coast to coast beginning September 10 in Vancouver. The symposium then moves east to Winnipeg (September 11), Toronto (September 12), Ottawa (September 13) and concludes in Halifax on September 14.
The half-day symposium series will bring together local experts, policy-makers and health advocates to explore effective measures to equip restaurant customers with calorie and sodium information to guide their dining choices and motivate restaurant owners to make the offerings more nutritious. Based on New York CIty’s menu labelling by-law, Writing on the Wall is an event geared towards dieticians, health advocates, researchers and policy-makers.
