This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winners – you have been notified!
Today, McDonalds announced that, starting this month, they will list calorie information on restaurant and drive-thru menus nationwide, to further inform and help customers and employees make nutrition-minded choices. In an era when staying healthy and fit is foremost in consumers’ minds, McDonald’s is committed to helping you make good choices!
This speaks volumes about the strides McDonald’s is taking to educate consumers on nutrition minded choices. In addition, this is just one of many changes that the quick-service restaurant chain has undergone, with their continued focus being to support children’s well-being, nutritionally-balanced menu choices, and nutrition information and education.
According to recent research by the International Food Information Council Foundation, only 15 percent of Americans accurately estimate the number of calories they need to maintain their weight. So, this past summer, McDonald’s introduced a “Favorites Under 400” menu that highlights the calorie information for some of customers’ favorite foods and beverages to help put calorie counts in better context.
And, McDonald’s is offering a super fast giveaway to my readers! The first five readers to tell me their favorite item from the Favorites Under 400 Menu will receive a coupon good for one small McCafé Real Fruit Smoothie (via coupons mailed by the Greater DC McDonald’s)!
Also, be sure to follow McDonalds Washington, DC on Twitter to be the first to know of their promotions! Send them a quick tweet, thanking them for their terrific healthy deals!
Fine Print: These free McCafe Real Fruit Smoothies will be given out in the form of coupons – these coupons will be valid in the Greater Washington, DC area.
