A Nutrition Guide - Eating Out

Eating out is, without doubt, a definite pleasure.  For the weigt and/or health conscious (as well as vegetarians/vegans and food allergy sufferers), however, the absence of certain basic informtion is something of a headache.  For some, a wrong choice can have a devastating effect, up to risking death!

The difficulty lies in how to communicate the desired information in a reasonable and inexpensive way.  One way would involve expanding menu entries, to include a list of ingredients and nutritional values.  At the moment, that's probably the only way, if everybody is to have access to that information.  In the future, each menu item could include a barcode or QR code.  Scanning such a code, with a smartphone or other device, would instantly bring up all the information.  The great advantage to this system is that, once in the database, the information is permanent.  Wi-fi access to the database via an app would be an elgant solution.

Food for thought...
