I. READING COMPREHENSION PRACTICE
Directions: Read the story. Use the information in the story to answer the questions below.
When you go to a
restaurant you often think that the food you are ordering is good for you. But many restaurants
serve healthy food, like fish or salad, with a sauce or dressing that uses a lot of oil, fat, or
sugar. The British Food Standards Agency wants all restaurants to say in their menus exactly
what is in each dish, how many calories, how much fat, and what additives. They think that
restaurants don't give their customers enough information, and that this new plan could help
people to have a healthier diet.
But chefs are not happy with the Agency's plan. One top chef said, 'people are not stupid.
They know that many sauces have butter and cream in them. But if we put on a menu that a
dish has 1,000 calories, nobody is going to order it!'.
However, many doctors agree with the plan. Bruce Ward, Professor of Medicine, said, 'people
know that cigarettes are bad for them, because it tells you on the packet. But when they go to
a restaurant they often have no idea if the food is healthy or not. Food products that have a lot
of calories, fat, and sugar need a health warning, exactly like cigarettes.'
