Yum! Brands Adds Calorie Info to Menus

No more guesswork when you’re doing work on that Burrito Supreme.

Fast Food giant, Yum! Brands, has announced that it will be voluntarily posting calorie info on all of its menu boards starting this year. The company owns A&W All American Food, KFC, Long John Silvers, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. They estimate that the complete transition will be completely by January 2011.

The move is a new one for the fast food industry, as Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and KFC will be the first national restaurant chains to post calorie info alongside their menus. In conjuction with this move, Yum! Brands will also stop advertising on television programs aimed at children under 12 and plans launch online exercise programs to promote a healthy, balanced lifestyle for their customers.
