As people increasingly eat out,
theknowledge of what they are eating, namely thenutritional information, becomes a concern offor many. Some people, therefore, require display ofexpect the nutritional information aboutfor the meals they have to be displayed in restaurants, whicharguing that this would help them make healthier (food) choices. Even though this idea looks plausiblereasonable at thefirst glance, a closer look wouldproves this suggestionit to be unnecessary and (in fact) unfeasible.
Those who require restaurants to display
thenutritional information of the mealsassume that smarter choices would (automatically) be made based on the extra information given. However, the reality is often different. this may not generate practical results.For instance, most people are fully aware that the intake of too muchmany extra calories would likely result in obesity; yet the fast food restaurants stillindustry continues to grow and prosper. Therefore, the idea of informing people in advance has failed todoes not necessarily deter them from eating unhealthy food.
In addition, people in general know what nutritional
factorsbenefits they can obtain from are provided incertain kinds of food, thus making the labeling unnecessary. People know what they are eating and what nutrition facts they contribute to their bodies.For example, fruits provide thevitamins; meats provide proteins and calories, and humans need a balanced diet to remain healthy. Eating out is no different. Even though the meals are prepared by different hands, the nutritional facts do not alterdiffer much because of that. In terms of nutritional value, what is provided froma tomato is a tomato, one fromwhether one eats it in an Olive Garden restaurant is to a large extent the same as what a person canor gets it from a local grocery store. People can wouldhave a decent idea knowledgeof whatnutritional value facts are offeredby looking at the menu and do not in general need extra explanations. If some people insist, that brings out another concern over the issue, that the idea is in fact not feasible.However, some people insist that restaurants display detailed nutritional information, which highlights yet another problem with this approach, namely its infeasibility.
Listing the nutritional facts of
themeals would require an unbelievable amount of humanlabor, making it impossible to be implemented toon a large scale. Ironically, it is often with the packaged food, produced through large-scale manufacturing that the nutritional facts are listed. This is because the foods inside are not visible, andthe manufacturing process is well controlled, so the amounts of thenutrients remains stable. In restaurants, however, the nutrition factsmeals' ingredients and preparation are not strictly controlled and are likely to vary. The amount of sauce a chef puts on different dishes can vary, altering differentthe amount of calories in them, for instance. offered. A change of ingredient can also trigger the same change.For a restaurant to list out the nutritional facts of its dishes, it therefore has to have people keeping track of all the informationmeals they prepare and keep updating itthat daily. The amount of work required would (clearly) be unbelievablyonerous. great.
In conclusion, even though asking
therestaurants to display present theirnutritional information about facts oftheir meals may sound reasonable, it would be both unnecessary and impossible to be implemented. If one really needs such information, they can use his portable device to checksearch for nutrition factsit online. In this case, he gets his desired information without adding much work for the others.
Note: The last sentence of your second paragraph works better as a topic sentence for the third paragraph, than a linking sentence, at the end of the second, as you had it.
