Guide to McDonald's Nutrition

McDonald’s food--the Happy Meal, Big Mac, Fish Filet Sandwich, french fries, shakes, smoothies, frozen parfait dessert, apple pies, apple slices, milk and salads are a staple of everyday life.

After McDonald’s supersized many of its offerings, consumer groups lodged protests and lawsuits against the company, which responded by offering healthier, lower-fat and lower-calorie choices. The McDonald’s corporate office also provided nutrition charts for every one of the foods and beverages it prepares and sells, enabling you to educate yourself about the difference between the Big Mac and a salad.

Today, consumers can find a McDonald’s franchise on nearly any corner of their communities, ensuring them that they can stop in when they get a fast-food attack. This Guide to McDonald’s will show you how the company was started and how it has expanded over the decades. You will also learn about how McDonald’s tries to listen to the concerns of its customers offering new, healthier fare along with its traditional burgers, fries, sodas and shakes.
