Calorie counts will be required to be posted at thousands of food selling establishments starting on Monday as part of a provision included in ObamaCare, Politico reported.


Parts of the food industry pushed hard against the rule and delayed the calorie counts, which are being implemented eight years after Congress asked for them.

The calorie count rule applies to chains with 20 or more locations that sell prepared food similar to what is sold at a restaurant, including grocery stores and movie theaters. Many restaurant chains already post calorie counts on their menus.

Calories for foods are supposed to be posted on menus where customers can easily see them.
