(Oct. 11) A member of the Philadelphia City Council has proposed a law that would require the city’s restaurants to post nutritional information – including calories, carbohydrates, sodium and fat content – for food items on their menus.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the measure, sponsored by Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown, is supported by nutritionists and public health officials but opposed by Patrick C. Conway, chief executive officer of the Pennsylvania Restaurant Association.

Conway maintains that the law would be costly and difficult to carry out because each dish can vary.

Meanwhile, Brown will reportedly consider compromises to get the measure passed.
