McDonalds offering Fruit, or Fries, with Burgers

WASHINGTON — McDonald’s is now more health-conscious. Instead of fries, thmcdonald's side salad [1]e fast-food restaurant is adding a healthy alternative.

Reuters reported [2] that McDonald’s decided to push a side salad, fruit or vegetables instead of french fries with its meals.

McDonald’s is responding to increased political pressure to help curb a rise in obesity, yet anti-obesity are unable to attack one of the core problems: personal motivations of consumers to eat junk food and not healthy food.

It is almost as hilarious as U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama’s push to get people to drink more water [3].

Time will tell whether McDonald’s will be able to still net profits with healthy side alternatives.
