McDonalds attempts to satisfy the Nutritional Guide complaintsTuesday, November 15, 2005 By Heather McVey ‘08
Lately McDonalds has been trying to make improvements that instead promote an active and balanced life style. Finally McDonalds is making the customers more aware of their food’s nutritional facts. McDonalds Corp has decided that it will be printing their nutrition information on the packages of the food instead of making the people go online to find out the information. There will be a list of the calories, proteins, carbohydrates, and sodium right in this information. Don’t be expecting to see your nutritional facts in your McDonalds foods until the first half of 2006 when they actually start printing them. Even then, they will be in only 20,000 to 30,000-plus restaurants. Although this isn’t the end of the complaints towards McDonalds, Washington based organization isn’t satisfied and strongly believes that nutritional facts should be written on the menu boards. However, according to the New Times CEO Jim Skinner claimed that the changes are due to their customers, not consumer groups. I guess McDonalds is going to have to keep working on a healthier food to satisfy the costumers and the consumer groups.
