Golden State Gets a Gold Star

Gov. Schwarzenegger signed legislation late September 2008 making California the first state to pass menu-labeling for restaurant chains. Finally realizing it is the right of consumers to make informed decisions about food consumed in chain restaurants. Hopefully, other states (err, DC) will play a little game of follow-the-leader and support menu-labeling in restaurants to promote a healthy environment for their residents. As more and more people expect to see this nutrition info in restaurants, we'll begin to see similar laws in other states. Making an informed choice about your meals is your right. California happens to be an early adopter and deserves a gold star. Who's next?
