Last week, McDonald’s nutritionist Cindy Goody spoke with The Salt Lake Tribune about changes to her company’s menu. She pointed out the addition of oatmeal, downsizing Happy Meal fries and adding apples to the popular kids’ meals. She also mentioned the 8 grams of whole grains in their chicken sandwiches. Nutritionist Andy Bellatti begs to differ with Ms. Goody’s claims. He counters her claims with what she didn’t include about the ingredients in the “healthy” items, including trans-fats, the 32 grams of sugar in the oatmeal, inferior ingredients… and those 8 grams of whole grains? You’d get the same in a bite or two of that sugary oatmeal.
