McDonald’s Nutrition Best Choice Award

Your late for a date, running vigorously, and fair

realized that you are hungry and that you haven’t had lunch. You look

around and the only place you can find quickly is

McDonalds. What do you do?

Your mind says no, it’s not healthy food. Your stomach says yes

it’s time to eat. It’s either going without food or grabbing something quickly from McDonalds. What about all the negative exposure regarding McDonalds nutrition facts?

You make the decision to grab something so your mind is clear

for your big date. Now what? Burgers, McNuggets, French fries, shakes and salads all confuse you as the best nutritional choice.

After reviewing the current McDonalds nutritional information, I have

decided to make it easier for the consumer to make smart

choices by listing my McDonald’s “Best Pick Awards”. Remember, you have a choice. Mickey D’s has attempted to offer healthier alternatives to choose from. It is your responsibility to make this smart choice.

My biggest concern when analyzing nutritional information from McDonalds was the amount of saturated fat clogging the arteries found in each article. I also paid close attention to the amount of calories found in each item.

Please note that there are healthier items found on their

menu than in the past, but overall not like eating brown rice and steamed vegetables. I list all the foods below in the “not too bad” category.

Here is my list of McDonalds “best pick prices”.

The choice is yours!

1. Classic Premium Grilled Chicken Sandwich 2g Saturated Fat / 420 Calories

2. Chicken McNugget (4 pieces) 2 g saturated fat / 170 calories

3. Fruit and nut salad 2 g saturated fat / 310 calories
