I love healthful foods…and I love fries. And, I believe it’s possible to have balance by enjoying both – at the same time.
So, I have to say I was impressed when I found out that, earlier this year, McDonalds has decided that kids (and their parents) don’t have to choose between the two. Why not have both?
Direct from their press release:
“The new Happy Meal will automatically include both produce (apple slices, a quarter cup or half serving) and a new smaller size French fries (1.1 ounces) along with the choice of a Hamburger, Cheeseburger or Chicken McNuggets, and choice of beverage, including new fat-free chocolate milk and 1% low fat white milk. For those customers who prefer a side choice of apples only, two bags of apple slices will be available, upon request.”
BTW the smaller order of fries has just 100 calories. Cool!
