How many calories and how much sodium are in a Caesar salad (starter size) plus Spaghetti with Meatballs (entrée) from one popular restaurant chain in Toronto?

It’s common to underestimate the amount of calories and sodium in restaurant meals. Calorie and sodium levels vary widely from restaurant to restaurant and there’s no way to know what you’re getting unless you have nutrition information. The average sit-down chain restaurant meal has 1130 calories and 2260 milligrams of sodium – more than half the calories and 1.5 times the sodium you need in a whole day! Fast food restaurant meals are slightly lower in calories and sodium since portion sizes tend to be smaller.
