In a recent Blog Post, I related how nine-year old Hannah Robertson called the McDonald’s CEO on the carpet, at the company’s Annual Meeting, https://thetruthoncommonsense.com/2013/06/13/did-you-know-that-mcdonalds-doesnt-sell-junk-food-ha/. Ms. Robertson asked Don Thompson, Burger-Flipper-in-Chief, why his restaurants did’t serve healthy food, and they also bribe children with toys. Obviously, he disagreed with her, touting some of their healthy choices; however, he failed to mention that several of them are being withdrawn, due to low sales.
In something unrelated, I recently saw the results of a study, which reported that, even generally-healthy eaters, pig-out at fast food restaurants. It also noted that healthy foods on the menu seem to cause customers to let their guard down.
The linked article, from “Real Healthy Recipes” provides a quick analysis of the marketing campaign that McDonald’s is waging to convince people that it’s new Egg White Delight McMuffin, with Creamy White Cheddar, is THE WAY to start your day. The article is: http://www.realhealthyrecipes.com/HowToEatHealthy/mcdonalds-egg-white-delight-wholesome-or-not/.
Surely everyone knows that Egg Whites are healthy–or are they? And, don’t forget to check-out the actual healthy food tips noted in the article.
