Dietitian's Dollar Menu (Mis)Picks

A dietitian recommends against ordering the oatmeal ("full of sugar") on a fast food chain's breakfast menu, but favors the fruit and yogurt parfait on the lunch menu. She also says the cheddar burger is better than another cheese burger because the cheese is "less processed."


Someone didn't read on the menu that you can order the oatmeal without added brown sugar. If you skip the brown sugar, the sugar content is lower than that of the yogurt parfait she recommends (plus the oatmeal has more fiber, protein and vitamin C). As for the cheese on the cheddar burger, it is just as processed as the American cheese on the other cheese burger... this is very clear from the ingredient lists.
