I know what you are thinking…. if only those prices were real. Ha! Honestly though, this is the new McDonalds Menu Board layout with easy to read Labeling. It has that very nice blue section there for “Choose Your Favorites Under 400 Calories” and then sections it off from 400 – 100. Do not fret! A Latte’ is still under 100 Calories, that’s all that is important here.
With the new Labeled Menu’s, McDonald’s also released their Nutrition Progress Report for 2012. Some new things that will be coming up in 2013 is an all Egg White Breakfast Sandwich and Wraps!
Did you know that since they put apple slices into Happy Meals that they approximate that over 100 million cups of apples have been introduced to young people’s diets annually? That’s really incredible for fast food. I have been a huge champion of the apple slices and Happy Meals serving sizes. We like to get one every so often as a treat for our tot and his servings should always be smaller than ours, not equal to. They’re going to be doing some more amazing things with Happy Meals coming soon as well! So make sure you check out the progress report.
I thought I’d share this since we went to McDonald’s today. I really love their Mocha Frapps. (Caramel Frapp is only 240 Calories!) It’s really interesting to see how far McDonald’s has come and how they’re really trying to work with families to help them make better decisions for themselves. It is always our choice, no matter where we are, to choose what we eat. McDonald’s is just offering us a lot more ‘better’ choices for a little less.
Just so you know, this wasn’t a paid promotion, although I was offered the information. We’re supporters of the Ronald McDonald House Charities that had once really helped my best friend when her son was in the hospital long term. So if you are ever wondering if your pennies really go to creating miracles, just ask my partner Angie.
