Menu Nutrition Facts


This topic can be confusing! The majority of the questions we receive related to what, by law or regulation, are restaurants required to make available and why do restaurants provide such a wide variety of information between different restaurants. We will try and explain. Also, we hope you get involved and help report data on restaurant menu nutrition and ask, in your state or province, just what is required.

Most of us are very familiar with the food industry and government regulations related to food nutritional labels. You virtually see this on every item you buy in a store, manufactured for sold in the United States. This information is required by law to be made available on food items. If you would like to read more on food labels and the nutritional information provide on these, we provide this on our Food Nutrition Label pages.

The restaurant industry is not required to follow this same type of reporting. There are a few states (and this is changing every month) that do require "some" elements of nutrition to be reported regarding their menu items sold in their restaurants.

You can advertise AND support non-profit programs. Run a banner for a 5 or 6 months and send an autistic child to camp, or sponsor an international child for 5 months, or provide 6 school backpacks for homeless children. 

Menu Mama may be the only mobile app who spends all or the majority of your ad money on giving back to charities. Contact us for more detail.

Your banner ad can run in your community for $150 for an entire 5 months or for a full year for only $300. We are serious about our support for non-profits. Our app was created to support and help people. We want to do the same for companies who want to support charitable programs. It is truly that simple.

Also, do you have a charity your business supports. We want to know about it. Tell us how we can help.
