The consumption of food prepared outside the home is an integral part of American life, and the number of people to rely on convenience food is multiplying. However, food prepared outside the home often contains excessive calories, fat, and sodium than the food prepared at home. Thus, excessive calorie intake coupled with a sedentary lifestyle can increase the risk of obesity and other health-related issues. In this connection, requiring restaurants to post calorie information on menus may help reduce caloric intake and also reduce the incidence of gaining body weights. However, little is known about the sociodemographic characteristics of individuals who are likely to use the calorie information available in the restaurants to choose the menu. Hence, this study investigates the sociodemographic characteristics of individuals who are more likely to use the calorie information available in the restaurants to choose the menu. Using the survey data collected by the CDC, this study investigates the sociodemographic characteristics of individuals who are more likely to use the calorie information available in the restaurants to choose the menu. Preliminary results indicate that the use of calorie information available in the restaurant varies among respondents based on their socio-demographic characteristics.
