New rules may be introduced to all New York restaurants. Authorities think that restaurants have to warn people about dishes with high salt level.

Those restaurants that have dishes which contain more salt than a daily norm for a person have to indicate them in menu with a special symbol.

New York is the first to think about this new introduction into restaurants’ policy.

This plan was discussed on Wednesday by New York’s Board of Health. If it goes successfully it may be introduced by December.

Dr Mary Travis Bassett, New York’s health commissioner, thinks the new rule would provide customers with more information.

This doesn’t change the food. It enables people to identify single items that have a level of salt that is extremely high

Restaurants workers started to think about this idea because if a person eats too much salt it may lead to high blood pressure and, as a result, heart attacks.

Melissa Fleischut, president of the New York State Restaurant Association, said that soon menus would include more warning signs than food products as they already have to indicate dish calories.

Michael Jacobson from the Center for Science in the Public Interest said that high sodium level is the most popular problem connected to nutrition.

New York is showing true leadership in doing what it can do to lower sodium levels in restaurants by highlighting to consumers the dishes that are the most outlandishly high in sodium
