McDonald’s Announces Shift to Healthier Options

The fast food giant says it will market more fruits and vegetables to children and offer nutritious menu choices.

Earlier this week, McDonald’s corporation announced that it will adapt its menu to be more in line with the growing diet and health awareness trend, according to The New York Times. With skyrocketing childhood obesity rates, fast food chains such as Burger King, Subway, and McDonald’s have put a new emphasis on healthier food options. McDonald’s says it will cease marketing the more unhealthy options to children and instead offer nutritious alternatives such as fruit and veggies. New menu combos for adults will also feature fruits and vegetables. The goal, says McDonald’s chief executive, Don Thompson, is “to leverage our scale and size and marketing prowess to be able to influence more purchases of fruits and vegetables.” Menu additions include smoothies, whole-grain oatmeal, and salads.
