Pune : With the rise of health problems among the citizens of Maharashtra, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has decided to share the calorie intake with people. The Administration has asked restaurants to mention the calorie count of each item mentioned in the menu. The final approval of the state government is yet to come after which this step will be regularized in every restaurant. Easy access to high calorie food has led to rise in people prone to diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases. “People are certainly getting more conscious of their health, but they are still not aware of the calories they are consuming while they order meal in a restaurant. The public should be able to make an informed decision while placing an order. Also, this way the hotel industry will be more aware about the calorie content in their dishes . The calorie content may not be exact, but patron will still know their calorie intake.” Said the Commissioner of FDA, Pallavi Darade.
