Also, the company has reduced the sodium in breads, “McNuggets” (breaded chicken sticks), cheese and ketchup by 10%. Furthermore, the amount of added sugar in the juice has been reduced by almost 40% (no more than 5 grams of sugar per 100 milliliters).
“With these innovations, the product happens to have a nutritional composition even more suitable to the needs of infant feeding: more vitamins and minerals, less sodium, sugar and calories, while maintaining the unmistakable flavor of the McDonald’s products,” the company said.
Adults will also be able to choose healthier options since October. They may replace the fries for green salad and tomatoes (less than 10 calories) with no dressing and will also be able to ask for bread, cheese and low-sodium ketchup.
