Along with the number of calories present in the food, the restaurant also mentions nutritional facts about the food, including the number of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and vitamins. This allows the customers to choose their meals according to their diet plan.

Over the past few years, there has been a steady growth in the healthy food industry, as more people around the world have become conscious about their food intake and its consequences on their health. Fast food is a popular food option worldwide, as it is inexpensive and involves quick service. However, it is unhealthier than other forms of food and leads to many detrimental effects on health, including obesity, high cholesterol – which causes heart attacks, type 2 diabetes, digestive issues, cancer, and decreases overall life expectancy. Due to all these negative effects on health, an increasing number of restaurants worldwide now offer healthier alternatives to fast food, including fast food made with organically sourced ingredients with low calories and better nutritional value.
