Chain restaurants around the city officially must now include sodium warnings on their menus.

The icon seen above will appear next to menu items that exceed the recommended daily sodium limit of about 2,300 milligrams, or one teaspoon.

City health officials say the labels will help New Yorkers make better decisions about what they eat.

The National Restaurant Association is suing to stop the sodium label mandate.

A state appeals court ruled in late May that the city can enforce the labels while the lawsuit goes forward.
