• FDA has launched a social media toolkit to assist with consumer awareness of menu labeling information. The toolkit features web badges that can be added to an organization’s website, a sample newsletter/blog, and social media messages for sharing on Facebook and Twitter.
  • The new consumer-focused materials refer to FDA’s www.fda.gov/caloriesonthemenu website, which provides consumers with additional resources for understanding menu labeling information and making restaurant choices based on “calorie needs.”
  • Having become effective just one year ago on May 7, 2018, the menu labeling rules remain relatively new, and the new social media toolkit is the latest in a series of FDA efforts to educate both industry and consumers on menu labeling.
