Making informed and mindful food choices

We’re dedicated to providing our customers with more delicious menu options, starting with the ingredients we use to make them. That’s why we involve food experts, like our Registered Dietitian Nutritionists and Our Chefs, who lead us in staying food-forward, keeping ingredients and nutrition in mind.

As a mom and registered dietitian nutritionist, I’m proud to have contributed to McDonald’s Happy Meal® developments such as the reformulation of the Fat Free Chocolate Milk Jug, choice of sides (Cuties® and Yoplait Go-GURT Low Fat Strawberry Yogurt), and inclusion of kids fries (110 calories).

I love having the opportunity to educate family, friends, and the community about what’s in our food. I enjoy working closely with our supplier partners to develop ingredient statements and answer questions about food allergies. Providing ingredient, allergen, and nutrition information in order to help consumers make informed choices when visiting our restaurants is the most rewarding part of my job!

People are eager to learn more about what’s in our food and where it comes from. What I enjoy is talking about the ingredients in our food and debunking myths about our menu items. McDonald’s has something for every appetite! A fun way to play with McDonald’s food is adding French Fries to the Filet-O-Fish to make a portable version of fish and chips. Cuties® or a piece of fruit complete the meal.

I love seeing the impact of my contribution. From voluntarily providing calories on menu boards, years ahead of Federal Legislation, to offering Chicken McNuggets® with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, to Salads that have more than 2.5 cups of vegetables.
