Google is making it easier for you to make better food choices.

The search engine giant announced Thursday it plans to highlight nutritional information for more than a thousand foods. The list includes basics such as meats and vegetables and some not-so-basic items like burritos and chow mein.

For example, when you ask Google how much protein is in a banana, you'll get that answer as well as an expanded box listing the calories and more. You'll be able to switch to other related foods or serving sizes.

The new search feature is rolling out in the U.S. over the next ten days in English. Over time, they plan to add more features, foods and languages.
