Cakes are good for you

I have always found the sign on the side of the display unit holding cakes and other sweet treats at Thorndon New World to be puzzling.

It says ‘nutritional information available on request’ – this implies cakes are good for you i.e. they have nutrients which in itself usually means good things. I suppose such a sign is there so that people know whether peanuts or flour or other things that you could be allergic to are in the cakes. In which case wouldn’t ‘ingredients information’ be a better sign? Or maybe the sign is there so that if you’re watching your weight you can find out how many calories are in a lamington vs. a cupcake?
