In addition to introducing the limited-time “Flavors of Summer” menu, McDonald’s is also continuing to focus on the nutritional commitments they made a year ago to make calorie information more accessible to its customers. Last month, McDonald’s launched “Favorites Under 400 Calories,” a new national menu platform featuring popular food and beverage choices for under 400 calories at counters and drive-thrus nationwide. This menu puts the calories front and center, and serves to empower customers and employees to make choices that are right for their nutrition needs.

Many customers will be pleasantly surprised to learn about calories of some of their favorite menu options at McDonald's – in fact, about 80% of McDonald's menu items are under 400 calories! Additionally, throughout the duration of the London 2012 Olympic Games, McDonald’s Executive Chef Dan Coudreaut, Champion of Food Kids, and Olympic Athletes will team-up to share creative home meal ideas, using fun, wholesome and great-tasting recipes with McDonald’s ingredients to help encourage family meal-time activities (You can view them on McDonald’s website by clicking on “The Best Of Our Best Taste” icon).
