McDonald's warns employees of unhealthy fast food

  • McDonald's employee resources website warns the company's workers of the dangers of eating fast food too often. "Fast foods are typically high in calories, fat, saturated fat, sugar, and salt and may put people at risk for becoming overweight," the website states, labeling a photo of a cheeseburger, soda and fries as the "unhealthy" option as compared to a photo of a salad, sub and water as "healthy."

    The employee website notes that fast food is almost always the unhealthy choice but shares a good way to eat a burger: "A single, plain meat patty without the cheese and sauces is the best choice. Ask for extra lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. Limit how many French fries you eat. Ketchup contains a lot of calories from sugar. Ask if you can substitute a salad for fries."
