It will also help track calories if menus also include a QR code to the nutritional facts.

use your common sense... eating out should be a treat. if you do it once per month, what's the big deal? if you have a healthy life style, there is no need to count calories...

But for some people, eating out is NOT a treat--it's a daily occurence. People have made fast food a part of their daily nutrition. I think this awareness effort is a great idea. To be honest, I was pretty shocked when I saw how many calories were in some of the food choices I was making. Thankfully, fast food isn't a part of my everyday consumption.
