McDonald's: Good or Bad?

Joann Bruso, an American nutritionist kept a Happy Meal for a year, and surprisingly the food has not decomposed!

Mrs Bruso left the Happy Meal uncovered on a shelf at her home near Denver, Colorado, to see what would happen. She has revealed the results on her blog, in which she gives healthy eating advice to parents.

The 62-year-old, who has eight grandchildren, admitted that the arid temperature of her home near the Rocky Mountains meant there was little moisture in the air with which to speed decomposition.

But she added that during the year-long experiment, no flies or other insects were attracted to the food.

She said:

"I had the windows open many times, but flies and other insects just ignored the Happy Meal. What does that tell you, if they can't be bothered with it? If flies ignore a Happy Meal and microbes don't decompose it, then your child's body can't properly metabolise it either."


But what does our dietetics graduate friend, April Lee have to say about it?
What about McDonald's claims?

According to April,


"McDonald's in Australia are trying to get ticks from the Heart Foundation, an approval showing that the food is healthy. Coke is excluded though, but you can have them with juice or water."


From McDonald's Australia's official site:


"We’re working with the Heart Foundation to help you make healthier choices at our restaurants. Our Tick approved choices are healthier because they meet the Heart Foundation's strict standards for serving size, saturated fat, salt and vegetable/fibre content.

Our items with a Tick have been independently tested by the Heart Foundation and shown to be a healthier choice. To earn the Tick each item undergoes extensive laboratory testing and is subject to ongoing rigorous, independent testing.

The Tick approved menu choices contain no more than 2% saturated fat."


Another food science and technology graduate friend once told us that the healthiest amount of McDonald's is one meal a MONTH.
When was the last time you've had McDonald's?
