FDA: Calorie information to become manadtory for restaurant, fast food menus

As a part of the Affordable Care Act's push to reduce obesity in the US, the FDA will make it mandatory for information about the calories in foods to be on the menu at restaurants and fast food chains with more than 20 locations.

Elizabeth Cohen, CNN senior medical correspondent, gives examples of some high calorie meals and discusses the implementation of the law on American Morning today.
