We were watching this the other night on Nightline and it just seems weird to me. Posting calories in movie theaters, airplanes and convenience store type places.
I’m not really sure I understand the whole concept of this. I get the whole “if you see it posted” you may not want it but really, is that really going to stop someone from getting popcorn at a movie or cheese curds at the fair? I mean really. I know these things aren’t good for me but I go to a move so rarely that if I want popcorn I could care less what’s posted on a sign.
I know a lot of people grab lunch or “snacks” at convenience type stores. I’ve been known to buy a hot dog and I know this dog isn’t good for me and if I want one, nothing posted is going to stop me from buying it. But I’m talking maybe every 3 months. I hardly ever do.
What about people who frequent these places for lunch? Do you think having all the calories and nutrition stuff posted will stop people from eating this junk food? Would it stop you? Do you think it’s necessary? Do you think it’s changed the way people eat at restaurants since they started posting nutrition info?
I’m of the opinion that when I buy this
I know very well it’s not good for me and if there’s a sign there that says how bad it is for me, I’ll buy it anyway. Would you?
