The New York City Board of Health has approved a proposal that will require labeling of certain foods on restaurant menus where the sodium content exceeds the recommended daily limit of salt (about a teaspoon).  In another prime example of ‘nanny state run amok’, Board members said that even though many restaurant companies post sodium information on their websites, requiring it on menus will help consumers make healthier decisions (do they really believe that?).  The requirement becomes effective on December 1 of this year for chains with at least 15 stores across the country.
