Calories on menus starting to change what people order
The mean number of calories purchased per customer has decreased at nine of 13 fast-food or coffee chains, according to a study presented today by researchers from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
The study found that the decreases were statistically significant at four of the chains: McDonald’s, KFC, Au Bon Pain and Starbucks. People purchased more at four other chains, but the study's authors said there was only one chain -- Subway -- where the increase was statistically significant.
