The new menu supports McDonald’s ongoing commitment to provide nutrition information in accessible ways that empower their customers and employees to make choices that are right for their nutritional needs.
“We’ve found that customers are surprised to learn about the calorie content of some of their favorite menu options at McDonald’s,” said John Durante, President, McDonald’s Owner/Operator Association of the Greater Philadelphia Region. “In fact, about 80 percent of national menu choices are under 400 calories for the standard recipe.”
“With Favorites Under 400 Calories, we hope to help customers understand how their choices fit within their daily recommended calorie needs, particularly with portion sizing and eating in moderation,” said Cindy Goody, PhD, MBA, RD, McDonald’s USA senior director of nutrition.
McDonald’s Teams Up with Local Gyms To showcase the “Favorites Under 400″ menu, McDonald’s has partnered with four local fitness centers in an effort to educate and engage a more health-conscious and nutritionally-aware consumer. At each gym location, McDonald’s will host an Olympic viewing party, where guests are welcome to tour the facility, watch the Olympics and sample some of the ”Favorites Under 400″ menu items.
