Some Manitoba restaurants will post nutrition information for customers

WINNIPEG - Some Manitoba restaurants will soon be giving customers a better idea as to what they're eating.

The provincial government and a handful of restaurant chains are launching a voluntary program, which will see the amount of calories, sodium, fat and other information posted for all to see.

Subway and Boston Pizza are already part of the program, and the government hopes more restaurants will come on board soon.

The program, called Informed Dining, is based on a similar system in British Columbia.
