Reviewers Comments: Useful booklet for consumers as it brings together the major national fast food chains in one resource, allowing for comparison and choice. Food and beverage item lists, including the serving size, calorie and fat content, are clear, readable, black and white text in a consistent sans serif font. Each restaurant is limited to one page so not all menu items can be included. Not included are such basics such as milk, orange juice, and all the different salad variations, which might make it more difficult for the consumer to make healthy selections.
