McD's Offering Salads In Lieu Of Fries
McDonald's Corp. says it will offer side salad, fruit or vegetables instead of French fries as part of Value Meals. The announcement Thursday by the world's largest fast-food chain follows government and consumer pressure to address the global obesity epidemic. McDonald's said it would offer the option in all of its 20 major global markets by 2020. McDonald's also said it would promote only water, milk and juice in its Happy Meals.
