McDonald’s Makes Positive Food Changes Due to Demand for Healthy Food

But McDonald’s is hardly a “healthy” place to eat

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:

McDonald’s has been in the news a lot this month, thanks to big changes the fast-food company is making to several of its menu offerings.

The company began making these changes more than a year ago, when it replaced margarine with real butter in its Egg McMuffins, and added kale and spinach to the iceberg lettuce in its salads. (Those kale salads wound up being higher in calories than McDonald’s famous Big Macs, though.) [1]

In March 2015, McDonald’s said it would only source chicken raised without antibiotics important to human health. The company said it expected it would take until 2017 to accomplish that goal, but the switch occurred sooner than expected. It also said it would transition to using only cage-free eggs, but that it could take up to a decade.

    So? Those who choose to go to McDonald’s do not go there for the tofu and baked fish tacos. They go because they like the taste and price of the food there. Besides… fast food is a place where a lot of people go to eat once in a great while. I go to a burger joint about 5-6 times a year. Unless they are serving strychnine sandwiches, it is virtually impossible for it to do me any meaningful harm whatever.
