McDonald’s Adding Calories to Menus

Yeeeaah. This should go over well with eaters still under the illusion that McDonald’s has any redeeming nutritional value.

Soon to be listed among the Big Macs and McFlurrys on every McDonald’s menu board and drive-through across the country: calorie counts.

As diners increasingly demand more healthful dietary options and nutritional disclosures, the world’s largest hamburger chain says it’s embracing both transparency and better ingredients.

Starting Monday, calorie counts will be posted at its more than 14,000 U.S. locations. That means customers will know off the bat that four pieces of Chicken McNuggets have 190 calories and that a McCafe Iced Mocha has 260.

A necessary and welcome step for fast food.
