Food of -- good -- all that's what McDonald's nutrition director and addition is claiming.
Talk about the launch of the new book -- Here's what she said.
It is possible to eat from the recommended USDA food groups when visiting McDonald's it's about choice it's about customized patients about looking at the cameras on the menu boy.
Doctor Mark Siegel is here and now -- Conventional wisdom is the McDonald's is bad for -- good food it's -- But you you went out that new tool to this nutritionist.
Did she convince you the McDonald's isn't bat.
I'm not only talk to her I talk to their -- their head chef.
Who was at the Olympics at the time and in in London I was impressed with both of them I feel that she's actually making a big attempt.
To put things of nutritional value.
On their menu and you know everybody laughs at -- but the truth is you know they've been put Apple's into the kids happy meals -- eating apples is better than eating French Fries are they only got -- -- that have cucumbers in them and they're coming out with a big white -- Well I think what it's better for you than they yelled so.
-- that I think McDonald's has to play New Orleans store we always like to say what should people do.
They told me McDonald's only that they had a veggie burger on the menu for over a year -- -- -- -- sounds great what happened to it.
They said nobody bought it while nobody bought it so nobody bought it we have to have -- on the menu I mean there -- company that's trying to sell product myself now.
If McDonald's is moving towards more nutritional food and you say that they -- yes -- all day responding to pressure from the government and food to put the food police say you've got to do this do this do this on the responded that the backside of the pressure.
All to what the marketplace wants.
Which I think it's it's number two I think that there responding to what the marketplace wants McDonald's is big enough.
So that they don't have to respond to the food -- police percent.
There's no regulations that are forcing them to do this it's the idea that people themselves are becoming more health conscious I love that idea -- may be interesting to see demographically where they sell more of this stuff.
You're probably California more than here in New York.
Yeah but I think it's a very good.
Sign that that the market is going and I.
-- I don't go off on a -- here but it seems to me just knobs.
That is almost a class thing about.
That poorer people tend to be more -- weight than wealthier people is that.
Document yes that's like you've been started and and is -- now there's two reasons for that one is.
It will McDonald's is blamed for that but -- is relatively cheap.
Available to -- of people they overeat to compels its McDonald's fault that they are obese that's the logical -- trying to fool.
By the way there is plenty of unhealthy food on the McDonald's menu but I don't blame McDonald's for that because they are just again responding to an audience and sometimes -- for poor people that's all they can afford to buy.
-- or that's what they're in the habit of doing you and I were talking before we came on.
That may be having an occasionally.
You know isn't the most unhealthy thing he's you know I -- -- -- those road trips -- where you're drumming along.
You're if you need a cup of coffee you see the McDonald's -- you stop you know if you didn't find them what would happen then you can get -- a car accident.
-- -- not without some value but I I definitely think though.
You you went off on another topic we definitely are too sedentary society and we do have bad eating habits as a society I just don't happen to blame McDonald's for.
I'm with him we -- we were talking -- during the break that.
And I should tell our -- I'm gonna launch family's from back in the day we take a road trip pile into the van and off we go to Florida some like -- well.
It's very convenient to stop -- McDonald's on the way down to Florida the kids know the menu and they want to eat at McDonald's I'm my point is.
You do it every day it all obviously you've got a problem I think if you do it twice a month is nothing wrong with that -- -- -- you.
I agree announce it now and my wife by the where we make those -- -- we'll have the solid and we'll have the fruit -- we'll have the -- Sullivan that's what's in the good noise the kids doesn't have that -- that he didn't get a -- -- -- adults are not gonna happen right but even for -- story directly or even kids there are more options than -- used to -- now you can have a -- instead of having to -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- itself does the best French Fries in the count have you really can't be that hard to believe that I got it right -- dot come again -- -- -- disputed.
