#UnwrapTheFun with McDonald’s healthier meal options

Standard

Join in the celebration to ‘unwrap’ Mcdonald’s latest addition, another delightful step towards a healthier direction. Titled and tagged as #UnwrapTheFun, McDonald’s held the grand reveal within the scenic park, at ‘McDonald’s @ Bishan Park’.

As more Singaporeans strive for a healthier lifestyle, constantly counting calories and limiting their carbohydrate intake, overall concerned with nutritional benefits, McDonald’s adapts to their preferences with healthier and balanced meal options. The ‘Delightful’ menu has been around for the past year, with the Sunrise Roll with wholegrain tortilla to wholegrain muffins, and that is not the last of healthy choices McDonald’s is offering. McDonald’s introduces brand new delightful options such as the McWraps, Delight 500 meals and Garden Side Salad.

Undecided between the Grilled Chicken McWrap or the Spicy Chicken McWrap? Both are equally full-flavored, easily enjoyed in good company or through the rush of the day. The wholegrain tortilla wrap is firstly layered with crisp fresh leafy vegetables, then a choice of grilled or crispy chicken patties, and signature sauces like chargrill or creamy mayonnaise. Packed conveniently as a healthy meal on-the-go, this wrap is readily available at any McDonald’s restaurant as a permanent item on the menu after 14 August 2014.

The new Garden Side Salad features whole leaf lettuce, red and white cabbage, crunchy carrots, corn kernels and tomatoes, doused with zestful Japanese Dressing. Simply top up $1.20 to trade the side in your meal for a Garden Side Salad.

Troubled with the hassle of counting calories, spending extra time balancing up the total intake of the day, or frantically keying in the data of meals consumed into Nutrition Tracking Apps such as Calorie Counter or Diet Tracker? McDonald’s has thought ahead for you and comes up with Delight 500. Delight 500 consists popular favourites that are gentle on your mind, heart and wallet. Going on a healthy diet does not mean all greens and only mineralised water perfected with ions and thoroughly filtered. Go wholegrain in your diet or take up the meal options of 500 calories and under, faithfully featuring well-liked items like Filet-O-Fish® and McChicken®. Replace the fries with a Corn Cup, and opt for Coca-Cola Light® or Dasani® Bottled Water at no extra cost for a step towards less calories.
