A pub chain has become the first to tell customers how many calories are in each drink.
The First Of Its Kind
Health-conscious punter can now see what they are putting into their body, as drink calorie information will be introduced on new menus for Wetherspoons chain in the U.K. next month.
And the good news is, many believe this will spark other pubs and restaurants around the world will follow suit.

“We want our customers to have as much information as possible so that they can make informed decisions about the food and drink they enjoy at our pubs,” says Wetherspoons chairman Tim Martin.
“We were the first pub company to highlight the number of calories on all of our meals and it seems a logical step to now do this for all the drinks that our pubs serve.”
In 2011, all Wetherpoons pubs added calories for all meals on the menu.
