I find it very helpful. For instance, today I stopped by Panera Bread and given the calories for a sweet with no nutritional value, I ended up spending more money for something that had more calories but also offered some real nutrition. I commend Panera Bread for their transparency and I look forward to a future where this information is always made readily available. I like the legislative idea that exempts smaller establishments - this is only fair. The mom and pop restaurants need not be burdened. The giants I believe over 20 locations must comply. Sadly the compliance date has been moved forward.
