BROOKLYN - A new study finds that nearly six out of 10 adults use calorie information when it's available to decide what to order at a restaurant.

News 12 asked Brooklyn residents if the labels make a difference when ordering at a restaurant.

Some residents said it affects what they order because they want to watch their weight. Others say it doesn't matter and they will eat what they want at a restaurant.
