The decision to leave calories off menus has been welcomed by an eating disorder charity.
The move, which was a key part of the National Obesity Strategy, is currently suspended and the Department of Health has "no plans" to resume work on it.
The Irish Heart Foundation have criticised the decision, saying it shows "inaction" on the plan.
But Communications Officer with BodyWise Ellen Jennings says it's positive news for those managing an eating disorder.
Jennings noted that environment adds to anxiety with those suffering from an eating disorder and listed calories could be triggering for someone with an eating disorder.
